Medium to full bodied with a lively, intense purple colour. Black cherry, rapsberry and fresh, spicy flavours dominate the palate with a vibrant, fresh acidity that make the wine a wonderful example of the modern, balanced style of Hunter Valley shiraz.
91 Points - Blackberry and boysenberry, a little spicy and toasty oak, quite a bit of pepper and a hint of grassiness. It’s has grip and grain on a medium-bodied frame, with a good dose of spice, a pleasant crunchy astringency, classic Hunter earthiness, and a pleasantly bitter, almost Italianate finish. More charm to come with a few more years in bottle, I suspect.
