"Firm, focused, tight and astringent, this typical, traditional long-term Wendouree shiraz cloaks its deeply layered but tight-fisted expression of black and red berries,plums and cherries in a firm, drying grip of astringent tannins. There's an ethereal quality about its restrained but complex perfume, which reveals nuances of cloves, white pepper and a hint of leather. It reveals more density and richness with aeration, even some genuine fruit sweetness, but finishes firm, long and briary, with lingering nuances of blackberry, licorice and iodide.95 Points/Drink 2026-2036+" - Jeremy Oliver

"Purple-crimson; much better clarity than the Malbec; strong black berry and licorice aromas lead directly into a firm, though medium-bodied, palate; has the energy, thrust and length missing from the Malbec, yet is exceptionally elegant, reflecting its low alcohol. Is one of those rare wines which get better sip by sip (or mouthful). 97 Points/Drink by 2026" - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
