Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “An on-trend, well-priced Yarra Valley syrah (aka shiraz) featuring 20% whole bunches. Rosemary and sage aromas set the scene for a wine of the earth, with a bevy of wild herbs and anise interwoven between dark berries, stewed plums. Tasted soon after bottling, an emerging savouriness was most intriguing.”
