Destemmed, crushed and chilled for a four-day cold soak, 10 months in French barriques (30% new). Light colour, but with a bright hue; the flowery bouquet of spice, rose petals and small red fruits is followed by a light, perfectly balanced palate, the promised red fruits duly delivered; the finish is long and in lockstep with all that has preceded it. 95 points, James Halliday (winecompanion.com.au).
Medium to full red/purple hue, with a bouquet of bright, fresh plum and dark cherry fruit, with a touch of fresh earth. Good primary fruit showing: a bold wine with lively acidity, 91 points, Huon Hooke (huonhooke.com).
Raspberry liqueur, mint, spice, pencil oak. Silky, raspberry fruit – sweet and succulent... Light tannin and even acidity. Finish is juicy and fairly long. 91+ points, Gary Walsh (winefront.com.au; 92+ points, Campbell Mattinson; 93 points, Mike Bennie).
…loaded with personality… holds itself with persistence and poise, at once fragrant and fruity and simultaneously savoury and structured, with fine, drying tannins reflective of a warm season in a cool site. 94 points, Tyson Stelzer (tysonstelzer.com).
Stem, soy, sesame -- great fragrance, poise and delicacy plus plentiful cranberry crunch. The antithesis of the South Australia expectation! 17/20 points, Jancis Robinson (jancisrobinson.com).
