Tasting Notes

Interesting how much game meat, exotic-smoky spice and savouriness enters this wine, though it’s also distinguished for its ripeness, sweet fruit profile, dusty tannins and quiet opulence. It really feels like Yalumba and Clonakilla have become easy lovers here – savouriness, silkiness, the bolshy ripe fruit, concentration. Seamless flow, a little edgy and skittish through the finish. Between perfume and finish, though, there’s lots of pleasure here. Mike Bennie – Winefront
