The Wine Front

“Mainly Shiraz with a little Mataro. Splendid packaging.
Dark berries, coconut and chocolate, perhaps a little like a Bounty Bar, but in the best possible way. It’s medium bodied, supple and subtly saline, but also has an earthiness and bouncy bass that brings this baby home. Tannin is fine and well meshed, and the finish features an array of red and black fruits, with a sprinkling of dried herb perfume. Gee, this is very bloody good to drink.”

Oz Wine Reviews

“Really purple fruit. Has an opulence to it which is very nice. A lovely plush, slightly glycerol sweet purple fruit flow, no excess (save for a little alcohol warmth) and a sense of both vibrant fruit and savoury, licorice edges. Very smart, modern and delicious Shiraz. Would I buy it? Yes. A bargain.”
