  • I love ruby red as a colour – it shifts light and makes the glass come to life.  Rolling this around you pick up more than the ubiquitous plums (fresh and fragrant) – you have more of a compote this year with blueberries and loganberries mixed into the aromas.  Oak can be noted as a frame of spice and savoury herbs/ olives edge the rim as you inhale.  Sipping this wine gives you a feeling that you need to keep digging into your memories – grandma’s lounge?  Hints of baklava from Melbourne?  It does transport you as it just will not sit still, such an interesting and complex little number.

     

    Gary Walsh from Winefront writes“Blueberry, boysenberry, dried roses, cocoa and baking spice. Medium-bodied, plenty of pencilly firm tannin, but something of a pretty mouth-perfume too, freshness, some black olive savoury stuff, distinct ‘mineral’ feel to acidity, pulling more to red fruits on a long and chalky finish. Lovely energy here, and a tighter more serious release in 2019” Rated: 95 Points
