    April 18, 2019 - Complex bouquet of ultra ripe cherry tomatoes, cassis, toasted clove and pepper with rich dark chocolate rounding the nose. Preserved olives with sweet blue and black fruits compote upon entry. Bacon fat and smooth mid palate with persistent notes of spicy grilled meat. The palate is intriguing, it starts with sweet spicy plums on entry and transits to salty mineral notes. The layering of the palate is amazing. The wine is a meal by itself. Although the structure is big and bold, the edges are nicely polished. Finish is deep and very long with just a tiny touch of herbaceous tannin to stretch the aftertaste. This just need 30 mins in the decanter to open up the wine. It is at its peak and will last for another 5-8 years given its concentration and complexity.

    Retasted in Oct 2020, less fruity than before but the spicy and vanilla nuance are still there. The big and bold palate has become more salty and minerals. Texture remained polished and silky. It is less mineral and dense than the 2010 vintage. Still at its peak.

    June 8, 2018 - Decanted 2 hours. Definite brownish tinge. Nose of coffee, spices and vanilla, all beautifully integrated. A wine I could sniff all night. Palate follows the nose, lengthy finish. Still drinking very well but not sure for how much longer.

    April 28, 2018 - Cellaraid - A Beef Odyssey - Coonawara Wine Dinner (Garang Grill): deep garnet; quite acidic, intense, long; cassis, cherry, cedar, tea, coffee, graphite, earthy; excellent!

    August 29, 2017 - Meat and oak on the nose.
    The wine has been in Oak for 32 months and a year in bottle before release.
    So if my maths are correct it was released around 2011-2012 hardly would a wine like this last only 3 years from release.
    Maybe someone is getting it mixed up with French Rhone or maybe just have not the mature taste buds required for Aussie reds ?
    Full bodied but lighter in colour and taste Than the 2009 Meshac from Grant Burge that I reviewed.
    The oak certainly is there in spades, on the tongue, a very silky tannin with slight astringency at the front of the tongue.
    The finish is lingering with fruit, no alcohol over taste ,no out of balance characters, that oak is ever present but not in a bad way.
    A finely attuned wine , gives me the impression that another 10 years will see this done but at the moment it is still developing into a classic.

    I will taste again in September 2018 or there abouts.

    retail $120.00AU

    2 December 2018.
    The oak has softened and now there is very rich fruit coming through a broad, rich fruit.
    On the nose less alcohol , the tongue softer ,light tannin and grip, still alive but intense deepening of the fruit has occurred.

    This has to be at it's peak and has improved since my first tasting and gets an extra point.
    just a beautiful deep rich wine of immense quality from a low yielding year.
    $95.00AU
