Featured in James Halliday's 2019 Top 100 Reds Under $25
95 Points - James Halliday "When you have a vineyard site as good as Hoddles Creek Estate, and lavish care on it as well as ever, the result is preordained. This is an elegant, spice-infused wine with tannins providing the boundary fence, fruit filling the centre. The length and balance can't be faulted."
Gary Walsh (The Wine Front) "Red fruits, hazelnut and spice, floral perfume. It’s light and perhaps a diffuse, at least as a young wine, but does deliver flavour, fine emery tannin, mouth-perfume, with a savoury autumnal finish of good length. Almost certain to build complexity and depth."
