Halliday Wine Companion 2021: A single vineyard sourcing, with vines dating back to the 1880’s, this delivers in terms of a sudden leap from the lower tier wines into a scope of not just power, but riper and well-toned tannins. These service the avalanche of fruit cascading from fore to aft. An impressively vinous wine of compelling length, showcasing the Grampians tapestry of scents and flavours: anise, mint, bitter chocolate and unctuous dark fruit riffs. 95 points. Gold.
