Winemaker "The Surveyor pays homage to John Riddoch Rymill, who led the British Graham Land Expedition to Antarctica in 1934-37, where he discovered and surveyed the Antarctic Peninsula. A complex nose with alluring dark mint, five-spice, and blackcurrants. Stylish, yet wonderfully intense wine. Lovely youthful tannins, oak, and dark ripe fruits, over a richly, structured finish. Careful cellaring for ten to twenty years will reward those with patience. 100% Coonawarra."
97-98 Points - Magdalena Sienkiewicz "Sampled following four hours of decanting. The abundance of blackcurrants, blueberries, liquorice, tar, graphite and sweet five spice is intoxicating. Complexity continues with mint, ink and cigar box. The palate is denser, riper and wonderfully plush. The sweet fruit rains down and washes with a mineral richness. Cranberries and graphite meld with fresh bay leaf and crushed dried herbs. The structure is superb and richly layered which indicates that this stunning wine will reward further cellaring and it is yet to unveil all its complexities."
