Expert Reviews

93 Points - James SucklingBold blackberries and plums framed in gently earthy notes and fragrance. The palate delivers a smooth, elegant and supple feel, where red plums meet mulberries in a fresh and neatly groomed mode. This has immediate appeal and medium-term aging potential. Try from 2020.
89 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionEstate-grown, the different blocks vinified separately, matured for 15 months in 3-4yo barrels. Full-bodied, but not extractive. Very smart new label.
88 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real ReviewDeep, dark colour with a toasty, charry oak and eucalypt 'forest floor' bouquet. The wine is full-bodied, very firm and grippy, with rustic structure and lots of grunt. Berries and gumleaf-mint. Future potential.
88 Points - Christina Pickard - Wine EnthusiastA sturdy wine showcasing Clare Valley's comparatively cool climes in the form of raspberry, cola, chocolate, and spicy, peppery oak characters. A lifted line of acidity makes the fruit feel juicy but there's simultaneously something heavy about the oak and tannin profile, like a thick blanket over the tongue, that weighs the wine down. Overall, a solid if not overly characterful wintery red.

It’s a dirty job but someone has to try all these wines for you and over the past 16 years as a Personal Wine Advisor I’ve tried a few! I like to try a wine twice as wine can often taste different in different situations. So if you still haven't found what you're looking for, here are a few that I have tasted recently that might suit.
