Deep brick red in colour the wine has subtle aromas of spice, pepper and savoury oak. The palate is medium weight with backberry fruit dominating, firm but with a long soft savoury finish. Although this wine is now six years old, it is still fresh soft and drinking well now it will continue to improve with further cellaring

Bright, clear crimson-purple; the Hunter Valley, often tormented by vintage rain, had a very good vintage while much of the rest of eastern Australia swam in water. This medium-bodied wine has excellent texture and structure, red and black fruits folded in an embrace of quality oak and balanced, but persistent, tannins.
Peppery, spicy aromas – red fruits too. Good briary lift to start. Concentrated in the palate, slippery texture, great length, nice fruit sweetness too. And a stemmsy kick of glossy acidity in the mix. Very likeable and made in an en vogue way, appealing to those seeking medium weight, savoury wine styles. Yes!
