Showing some early signs of development with earthy, leather and a hint of sulphides. Dry, medium bodied and elegant on the palate with chalky tannins and earth and cedar oak flavours. Gentle finish. Drinking really well. 62% Shiraz 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot.

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.
