‘Most immediate of the shiraz ‘Royal Flush’, from clay soils. 2007 ‘big’ in all respects; ripe red pimento fruits, sturdy oak vanilla (26 mths new Fr) & opulent 15.4% alc in a Zin-lookalike package. 2006 elegant after gorgeous 2005 (5 stars).’ – Platter's SA Wine Guide, 4.5*
‘Sourced from terra rossa soils on southeast slopes, 2007 The Stork was raised for 27 months entirely in French oak. It has a decadent, almost ostentatious bouquet of macerated dark cherries, creme de cassis, plum and glycerine. The palate is full-bodied with silky smooth, seamless tannins and layers of luscious red fruits. The alcohol at 15.54% is well controlled although it lends the finish warmth rather than precision. For hedonists, this is the perfect Shiraz! Drink 2012-2018.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 91/100 (Aug 2011)
‘Ripe and focused, with a beam of crushed damson plum, linzer torte, loganberry and succulent black cherry fruit, laced with licorice and spice on the rock-solid finish. Shiraz.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 90/100 (Jun 2011)
