Gold 95 Points – Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022 "This has come together well, with cassis and currant coated in savoury flavours of pepper, char and wild herbs. It’s full bodied but not unwieldly, as the tannins are fine, long and ripe. Incredibly fresh."

91/9% cabernet sauvignon/malbec, aged 18 months in 23% new French oak barriques, then blended and matured 6 months in foudre.

91 Points – Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022 "Lovely perfume, all florals and cherry accents. Spiced morello and red cherries, a juicing of blood orange and zest plus a hint of poached rhubarb."

The two clones of Pinot Noir (MV6 and Pommard) were hand-picked, 70% whole berries/30% whole bunches, three days cold-soak, 100% wild ferment, five days extended maceration, matured in French oak barriques (31% new), receiving eight months élevage.

For a very warm year, 2018 delivered a delicate and elegant Pinot Noir. On the nose there are lovely herbal notes from the inclusion of some whole bunches; raspberry, red cherry, carnations and vanilla also leap from the glass.

The palate delivers flavours of sour cherry and cranberry, with firm, fine-grained tannins adding structure and focus.

93 Points – Andrew Graham, OzWineReview "For all the ripeness and flow, it’s all well contained and enjoyably big-boned. Nice traditional Chardonnay."

100% Estate grown chardonnay. Four different clones (mendoza, 76, 95 and 96) were all hand-picked, whole bunch pressed. Fermented and matured in French oak barriques (40% new), minimal battonage, with 8 months elevage. The nose displays aromas of white chocolate, peach, pear and spices. The palate is rich stonefruit, tangerine, spicy wood and firm acidity.

94 Points – Andrew Graham, OzWineReview "Really nice wine this, I almost caught myself drinking it on a tasting day."

92 Points – Gary Walsh, Winefront "Medium-bodied, a bit spicy. Supple flow of juicy dark berry flavour with guiding graphite tannin… Nice wine here."

2018 was a vintage of two halves a cool and relatively moist winter and spring, thereafter conditions were exceptionally dry through to the conclusion of vintage.

Sourced from the Thousand Candles vineyard in Gruyere, 35% whole-bunches and 65% whole berries. Fermented (100% wild) in large-format, oak fermenters, five days cold soak and gentle handling (pump overs only). 15 months élevage in French oak barriques (12% new), then a further six months in large-format foudré.

92 Points – Ralph Kyte-Powell "A deeply-coloured young cabernet blend with a succulent aroma of blackcurrant pastilles, briar and earth. It’s lush and seamless in the mouth, with berry and dark chocolatey flavour of good persistence, finishing with finely integrated tannins. A Yarra cabernet of generosity and elegant balance."

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), Merlot (36%) and Malbec (2%). Fruit was destemmed, crushed and fermented separately. Five days cold soak and up to two weeks extended maceration. Matured in French oak barriques (23% new), receiving 18 months élevage in barrel before blending, then a further six months in large-format foudré.

92 Points – Huon Hooke "There's a lot of richness and volume here, the impact is high and the acidity and clean tannins carry the palate long and powerfully. It's very good and has a bright future."

This Shiraz was made with selected grapes from the renowned Heathcote region in Central Victoria. Hand-picked, destemmed and crushed and fermented in open top tanks with a mixture of wild and cultured yeasts. It has been matured in French oak barriques for 15 months of which 30% was new oak, then blended, lightly filtered and bottled.

The 2017 Shiraz is deep red in colour with blue tinges and displays rich aromas of dark fruits, blackberry, black currant, nutmeg and toasted clove spice on the nose. The palate exhibits intense fruit characters of blackberry and black currant with toasted clove spice and a long smooth tannin finish. It can be enjoyed now or cellared for ten to twenty years.
