Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
It’s kind of anachronistic, I guess, but there’s a feel of solidity, and quality to this wine. It’s a gently maturing classic Australian dry red, with red and black fruit, dark mint chocolate and maybe liquorice, with spicy freshly lathed wood as seasoning. Medium to full bodied, almost succulent small dark berry fruit, toasty wood, a saline beefy character, minty perfume, firm but ripe fine grained tannin, and a gently dry and grippy finish of fine length. It’s old fashioned, yes, but kind of feels like falling back into your favourite old leather lounge. It’s a yes from me.
Winemaker's notes "Colour - Deep red, some mature hues. Nose - Intense cinnamon/chocolate/mint with refined French oak. Palate - Rich and soft with classic Langhorne Creek chocolate/mint intensity. Excellent "long" palate balanced by the French oak complexity."
