PROFESSIONAL REVIEW

– Gold Award – Sommelier Wine Awards 2020, UK

“A well-made Australian blend from a cooler area, reflected in this classier style of wine, opening with a vibrant and inviting nose led by lavender and red fruits, leading to gentle sweet oak balanced by some bitter tannins and a bold, dry structure”. – Matti Mazzi, Cornerstone.

– 92/100 Points as rated by Ray Jordan – The West Australian

– Review by Christina Pickard (April 2020): “From one of the Yarra’s longstanding producers … Savory tannins and forest-berry fruit add personality and charm”.
