“Plenty of creamy spicy vanilla oak over blackberry/boysenberry fruit with a shake of black pepper and some regional earthiness. A huge grippy concentrated palate with ripe blackberry fruit and spicy earthy flavours. Very long tannic finish. It looks very typical of the vintage and although I wish there was a bit less oak I think the fruit is here to back it up. Great vintage. Great wine.”
95 Points Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

The growing season was dominated by the worst drought recorded since 1902.Negligable rainfall in the prior autumn, winter and spring resulted in parched clay soils which seriously reduced crop expectations. The only useful rainfall period in the growing season occurred in December, too late to increase the crop but gave welcome relief to severe bushfires in the district. While the yields were disappointing, as so often happens out of the adversity, the quality of the wines produced were outstanding.
