The Wine Front – This wine shows the adaptability of Grenache over Shiraz, to warm climates. 60 year old vines from the Noto vineyard. Ripe raspberry, biscuit spice, aniseed and dried mint, a stony ferrous thing happening. It’s rich and plush, a flood of sweet raspberry and baking spices, supple grainy tannin, dried roses and potpourri, some ‘mineral’ character, and a long slightly tarry finish. Fleshy, distinctive, and very good. Drink 2022-2029. - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
James Halliday – Hailing from one of the last remaining old vine sites in the Adelaide Plains, a region now awash with industrial fruit stalls and McMansions. Harking to the 1950s, these vignes are treated right: hand picked and basket pressed. The barrique ageing works surprisingly well, too, imparting tannic fibre as much as cocoa and coffee grind to a fleshy palate with a core of molten raspberry bonbon. Anise and dried herb stain the finish. Sumptuous, weighty and immensely characterful. - Ned Goodwin MW
