2014. 91 Points. - Winefront
2013. 94 Points. Light and shade. The grunt of blackberry, the sweet relief of raspberry. Both combine here with earth, spice and creamy oak to present a pitch-perfect expression of modern McLaren Vale shiraz. - James Halliday
2013. 94 points.Good Shiraz. Earthy, blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate with a little mint and toasty spice oak. Rugged, ferrous, choc-licorice bullets, firm deep tannin and fresh blackberry acidity. Big flavour, but shows some restraint. There’s a slight taste of salted beef in the finish, along with a slick of lovely grainy tannin. A great follow up to the 2012 vintage. - Winefront
