“The best barrels of the vintage are selected for our Reserve range and given additional maturation in oak prior to bottling and cellaring.” – Geoff Merrill
The colour is a dark red with great depth and youthful hues. The highly complex aromatics greet you as you come towards the glass. The bouquet is intricately filled with savoury meats, spice, chocolate, leather and edges of primary berry fruits.
The palate is rich and luscious with ripe, sophisticated developing fruit, firm velvety tannins and seamless, harmonious acidity. This wine is a real pleasure to drink, openly inviting you to your next glass.
96 points – James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
