Deep red in colour, a heightened aroma of mocha coffee and spicy dark fruits with a creamy vanillan oak background note. The palate is both powerful and voluminous with layers of unravelling flavour of plumb and blueberry fruits balanced with very fine and structured tannins that linger.
The palate is in the Hunter Valley medium bodied style and does not disappoint with lashings of juicy cherry fruit integrated with fine tannins throughout the palate and a fresh lingering acidity. The wine is combination of flavour, softness and lightness.
Deep purple red with a nose of chocolate, earthy spice and blood plum, this follows with an incredibly smooth creamy palate with blackberry and plum fruit and dense supple tannins and a long fruit dominated finish.
“Medium to deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet shows some graphite, coal-dust and char-oak, while the palate is rich and soft, the flavour deliciously detailed and long-lasting, with superb harmony and seamlessness. A stunning shiraz that drinks wonderfully well now but has plenty up its sleeve. Wow!” – Huon Hooke
