Nicely done these wines, in that they don’t rely on new oak. Seems to be mainly about expressing the vineyard character. Blackberry, blackcurrant, roast beef with sage and rosemary, with a dusting of pepper and spice. It’s fleshy and rich in slightly truffle-laced sweet dark fruit, some blood orange/amaro elements, fine dusty tannin, shitake mushroom and coffee bean umami flavours, and a perfumed and succulent finish of good length. Good. Read more

Aromas of fresh red fruits, paprika and ground clove. Full-bodied with powdery tannins. Savory and spiced on the palate with a solid core of red fruits and berries. Nutmeg and thyme come through. Drink now.

Tasting Notes

The Avenue to Gold 2018 displays vibrant crimson colour. Aromas of Fresh blackberry andAsian species which evolve to pipe tobacco, dried sage and rosemary. The wine enters the palate with power and presence carrying liquored blackberry and coal dust flavour at first impression. It turns savoury slowly delivering black peppercorns and umami notes which provide a lovely mouth watering finish. This wine has a very complex finish which touches on both fruit and savoury details. Avenue to Gold’s fine tannins and acidity will bring pleasure in its youth and allow long cellaring.
