2023 Halliday Wine Companion – Jeni Port, August 2022
A co-ferment with a small amount of viognier, brings forth a complex and fragrant wine. Viognier helps lift the bouquet in violet, anise, pepper and briar with black fruits and blueberry. The palate stretches out across the palate in fine, lithe tannins. Fabulous flavour concentration and deliciousness for the price. Rating: 95 points Special Value Wine
James Suckling – October 2022
An elegant and beautifully structured shiraz with floral notes as well as subtle red berry and orange fruits, plus a hint of spice. The very polished tannin structure drives this along at the long, cool and mineral finish. A blend of shiraz with a small amount of viognier. Drink or hold. Rating: 94 points
