    October 21, 2017 - Our first Aussie GSM, this wine was fantastic. 52% Shiraz (Syrah for us Yanks), 26% Grenache, 22% Mourvèdre. Don't let the screw cap fool you...this is an exceptional, high quality wine. Nice aromatics of dark cherries and pipe tobacco after 20 minutes of air, with juicy and bright red fruit on the attack. A long, lingering finish follows its lip-smacking and juicy core. A terrific balance of ripe fruits, pleasing acidity, and soft tannins make this a wonderfully elegant wine. I'll definitely be picking up some more of John Duval's wines in the future if this is representative of his winemaking prowess. Very highly recommended.

    May 21, 2016 - Right out of the bottle, she was a bit harsh. But two hours in the air, and she evolved into a beauty. This Aussie version of a southern rhone blend is really wonderful. The fruit was beautiful and strong and all the rest was in fine balance. Terrific for a grilled steak. But do give her time to catch her breath.
