Fermentation took place over 10 – 12 days in a combination of open and static fermenters. The temperature was closely monitored to ensure the wine retains its natural fruit expression. New and older French and American oak was used for the maturation of selected wine parcels over a period of 13 months. These parcels were put together from our family estate to best demonstrate the depth and character of our fruit, balanced by integrated oak.

tastings 2018 gold"Garnet black color. Exotic, attractive aromas and flavors of chocolate mint, black raspberry tart a la mode, and basil and curry leaves with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a compelling, medium-length finish with elements of spiced nuts, chocolate herb muffin, hint of marinated peppers, and vanilla pod with fine, chewy tannins. A exotically spicy and herbal shiraz with a great style and sense of place."

tastings gold 2017"Dark black violet color. Aromas and flavors of wet earth, blackberry jam, saddle, and smoked poblano pepper with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, refreshing, medium-long lavender, twigs and stems, and dried pomegranate finish with chewy, dusty tannins and moderate oak. Well-integrated aromas and flavors along with a rustic yet refined edge make wine drinkers seeking adventure beg for another sip."

wine enthusiast 87 pts"This straightforward red blend from the Padthaway wine region in South Australia leads with ripe plums and cherries that feel a touch sour at times. Pepper, dried mint and vanillin oak characters are there, too. In the mouth it's medium to full bodied with slippery, plump fruit, a grip of grainy, savory tannins and a short finish. - CHRISTINA PICKARD"

wa"Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2015 Shiraz / Cabernet has baked plums and crème de cassis with nuances of eucalyptus and chocolate box. Medium to full bodied, the palate has plenty of juicy baked berry flavors and a chewy texture, finishing uncomplicated."

vinous logo 250"(raised in new and used French and American oak for 13 months): Bright violet color. Spice- and smoke-accented dark berry and cherry aromas pick up a suggestion of pipe tobacco with air. Supple, sweet and densely packed, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and a refreshing jolt of cracked pepper on the back half. Supple tannins give shape to the energetic, spicy finish. - Josh Raynolds"

wa300The three red wines from this producer are all well above average efforts with lots of flavor as well as Australia's so easily obtainable, lush fruit. The 2013 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon (55% and 45% respectively) exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue along with a layered, peppery, berry fruit-scented nose revealing licorice and meaty notes. From a much lighter vintage, it is a supple, easygoing red to enjoy now and over the next several years. - Robert Parker"

Wine Advocate 88 Pts"More interesting, the 2012 Shiraz Cabernet, a blend of 55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, was aged in a combination of new and used French and American oak barrels. It offers notes of mint, pepper, spice and blackberries in a rich, medium to full-bodied, silky textured, plump, juicy style. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years."

wa88The 2012 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon (55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon) is slightly richer than the 2013, revealing slightly more body and opulence as well as a similar bouquet of blackberries, licorice and hints of spring flowers as well as spicy wood. Nicely textured, lush and slightly longer than the 2013, it can be drunk over the next several years. - Robert Parker"
