96/100 - Cameron Douglas MS March 2020
"Really lovely bouquet with layers of fruit and oak, a nervous youthful texture with firm tannins and acidity to match. The fruit ripeness punches through the new oak layers and texture-laden tannins with a fleshy, generous and red berry surge. Complexity builds as the wine opens up in glass, layers of fruit and spice begin to emerge after a few minutes. A wine still relaxing and developing. Drinkable now, but best from 2021 through 2028." Cameron Douglas
17+/20 - Tim Jackson JancisRobinson.com
"Bendigo subregion. 400 m elevation, high terrace. Polyphenols naturally high, due to slow and long ripening, so very light extraction, with only cap-wetting and a few punch-downs throughout fermentation. Mid-deep black-purple – almost Syrah-like colour. White pepper and cedar, with bacon fat! Toasty oak complexity over ripe, plush blackberry fruit. The herbal and orange peel characters are the non-Syrah elements. Brisk acidity, flinty-schist mineral, spice and bacon-fat oak toast. Firm, peppery, Syrah-like tannins. Long and spicy. (TJ)." Drink 2024 - 2032 Tim Jackson
