Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Deep, ruby-red, slightly lighter edged. The nose is softly full and enticing, broody nuances of plums, red berries entwined with spice, a hint of gamey, meatiness, and tobacco added complexity. Medium-full bodied, red berries and plums have a vibrant core, cloves and pepper grow on the palate, followed by savoury meatiness and tobacco. Fine-grained tannins coated the palate with silk; integrated acidity provides freshness and an elegant flow. This elegant Syrah shows freshness, balanced oak element and a silky mouthfeel. Match with roasted pork and lamb shoulder over the next 5-8 years.
Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
Gorgeously styled and composed, the wine shows Black Doris plum, floral, olive and cedar characters on the nose. The palate delivers refined mouthfeel and silky flow, wonderfully enhanced by ripe fruit intensity and polished tannins. Seamless and persistent with seductive complexity. At its best: now to 2032.
Cameron Douglas - MS
Ripe, varietal and fleshy dark fruited bouquet. Aromas of black currant and barrel spices, layers of ansie and licorice, dark plum and moments of raspberry. Equally plush and fresh on the palate with berry and plum fruit flavours that mirror the bouquet, youthful silky tannins and a back bone of acidity. Great balance and length, potential for cellaring as well as early drinking. Ideal window for drinking 2023 through 2027+.
