    May 9, 2018 - Tasted at the Whitewater Valley Wine Society, Hampshire, UK.
    This is produced from the oldest vines on an outpost vineyard. This wine had a bright ruby colour and a nose full of plum, cherry and anise aromas. On the palate it was initially light, but then there was more structure and weight of soft and sweet fruit followed by hints of chocolate and spice. This wine was a most pleasant way to end the tasting and it was interesting to learn that it is served to First Class Passenger on BA flights!

    October 9, 2016 - Pinotpalooza (Carriageworks, Redfern): rich, stalks, new oak, ripe fruit…not what I look for but this is really good and coarse carries crisp cherry and berry fruit with front of mouth tannic grip. Nice
