    May 9, 2022 - Stunning wine, so balanced, succulent and delicious. Texturally it is beautiful, tannins a highlight for sure but the ripe core of plummy fruit is the showstopper. There is fennel, spices, black tea and a dollop of cedary oak to complement the dark fruit. Not sure Eden Valley gets a lot better, love this.

    June 13, 2019 - The thing that strikes you the most about this wine is the balance; there are rich purple and black fruits, pepper and spice and a toffee and vanilla cream overlay. A spicy nose with mixed berries and plums. It is dark purple to black - and while there’s some sweetness, at its core this is a savoury wine. Chocolate and coffee beans and sage play a role too. It’s plush and polished with velvety persistent tannins and a long juicy finish. You could leave this in the cellar as long as you want, but I have no regrets about trying one now.

    December 26, 2018 - As good as Hill of Grace. That's what Gary Walsh said on The Wine Front about this wine.

    The darkest royal purple. Glorious colour. Intricate, intoxicating nose. Juicy fresh black cherry, blackcurrant and some blueberry from the 1858 Eden Valley vines. Sage infused, cooked sausage, violets and background notes of banoffee pie, lime and orange pith. Warm and enveloping mouthfeel. Galloping thoroughbred tannins. Muscular. Silky. Black and blue fruits soar with graphite, more premium sausage, violets, banoffee pie, cedar oak and orange pith.

    Utterly spellbinding.

    A must buy at $95, cellar door, for a special occasion or that someone special. Drink 2025-2040.

    A Wozza 97/100 (4.6/5.0) from me.

    October 23, 2017 - A regal and refined wine within the Barossa genre. Dark fruits, chocolate and spices on the nose, dig a bit further and some red fruits too. Towards full bodied, satiny tannins that flesh out on the midpalate and backend, dense flavour profile very much in the sweet dark plum and chocolate spectrum, some thistle, and a very discreet smear of acidity underneath it all.

    Drinks very easily now, so can be opened now with confidence or cellared for 5-10 years. 14.5% ABV, cork.

    June 10, 2017 - Just beautiful. Choc dipped dark cherries, candied flowers, game. Fine, silty tannins and fantastic length. One of the best out of Barossa.
