“This has a very sleek, polished and nicely ripened set of aromas that sit in the raspberry and red-plum spectrum. There’s a smooth build of tannin and a fleshy red and dark-berry core here. The depth and seamlessness are both impressive.”
"Very impressive dark plums and licorice with toasted spices and blackcurrants, leaves and herbal accents, which speak strongly to cabernet. This is an impeccably made wine. Silky tannins that are long and succulent with some redcurrants creeping up through blueberries and cassis."
"Despite the regional shiraz brand, pushing too into grenache, the Vale's maritime influence serves cabernet well. When this variety-tight of tannic fist and plentiful of acidity-is grown in regions too hot, it loses its form. Not this. bouquet garni and leaf lift mulberry and a blue-fruited flow, cassis singing above all. While powerful, one's overall impression is that of a medium-bodied savouriness."
"A 50/37/13% blend matured for 18 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak (20% new), one of Wirra Wirra's celebrated foot soldiers. This really does over-deliver; while it's chock-full of luscious red and black fruits (more on the red side) it has good shape and texture, the finish very more-ish. Value+."
