Critics Ratings

‘2009 has a stunning nose of coriander, white pepper & dry spices. The bold palate shows off plush shiraz spice & vibrant fruit, while dash cab adds to fine structure. All elements harmoniously poised to evolve over next 10 years or so.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 4.5*

‘The 2009 Reserve Red is a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a very well defined bouquet with blackberry, marmalade and orange blossom, the Cabernet imparting a scent of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with quite strict fresh tannins. This is not a voluptuous wine, but rather linear and focused with great freshness and vivacity towards the citric finish. It has enormous length and breadth. This is a superb Syrah that should age with style.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Dec 2012)

‘90% Syrah and 10% Cabernet. Deep layered crimson. Broad and covers all the bases. Spicy. Lots of vitality. Very rich but not at all sweet.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20 (Jan 2015)
