Winning the ‘Best Wine in Show’ at the 2018 Geelong Wine Show for their 2016 Geelong Shiraz came after they were awarded the ‘2019 Best Value Winery’ in Australia by the Wine Companion. James Halliday, the pre-eminent wine expert in the country rates them a “Five Red Star” winery, placing them in the top 8% of wineries in the country!
An attractive deep violet colour in the glass. Lifted fruit aromas of licorice, black olive and allspice speak of vineyard rather than the winemaker’s toolkit. When tasted, powerful fruit flavour matched to medium weight is cut with a fine textural tannin input. The long in flavour finish, is matched to fresh natural acidity that completes/balances the wine. An age-worthy refined wine.
