    April 9, 2019 - Really shines with air and was at it's best on day 2. It didn't make it to day 3. Showing plum, blackberry, terracotta pot, white pepper and violets. Not much more than medium weight with silky tannin and beautifully balanced acidity. Structure seemed to build over time. Great length. Beautiful now but I have no doubt it will a stunner in 15.

    May 18, 2017 - boom bash whack, blackberry, little milk choc, cola , surprising. A little mechanical in the winemaking sense

    February 7, 2017 - Pretty bright red/purple in colour. Spicy fruit nose. Again spice on the palate, with a firm long dry finish. A wine with heritage reflecting "traditional" Hunter Shiraz. Needs more time to mellow and develop complexity.

    February 22, 2016 - A classic in the making 94/100 (4.0/5.0) from me. I dipped my toe, buying two of these from myCellars at $35 a bottle purely on the strength of the winemaker, the 2014 Hunter Valley vintage (which many are saying is amazing), and on Gary Walsh's expert rave review (he scored it a 95+). It hails from the red volcanic soils of the 1968 Steven Vineyard in the Hunter, and you can tell.

    There's boysenberries, spice and sweet ripe cherries on the bright smelling nose. The light to medium bodied palate follows those flavours with added plums and blackberries. And there's a light white pepper zing to the elegant finish. Michael De Iuliis says this will drink well young and reward the patient who can hold out for 10 yrs. I totally agree. That's me in for another 6 ...

    December 27, 2015 - PnP and consumed over 3 hours. Lovely wine. Medium bodied with a nice balance of red and dark fruit and acid and tannin. Pretty smooth right out of the bottle and mellowed a bit further over the hours. Ready to drink now with a little air though will certainly improve with some time (2-5 yrs). I do not think this is a long term ager though. These slightly lighter bodies spicier Hunter shirazes are really coming into their own.
