Primary fruit driven nose with redcurrant and black cherries. Dry, medium bodied, elegant wine with black cherry flavours as well as earthy cedar notes and sweet baking spices. Well integrated acid and tannins in what is a fruit driven finish to the palate. Made by Andrew Miller who has sourced fruit from a vineyard planted by Brian Croser in 1999, the vineyard comprises several clones from the Tahbilk and Wendouree selections. Andrew makes consistently good wines.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
