Accolades

Halliday Wine Companion 2018

Score: 95 Points

Wine review: '10% whole bunches, 90% destemmed, matured for 9 months in used French puncheons. Good depth to the colour; black fruits lead the way, cherry and berry in equal parts. Controlled alcohol pays dividends on the long, medium to full-bodied palate. Tannins and oak have been skilfully handled, subtly adding to the complexity.'

Wine Writer: James Halliday

Tyson Stelzer's Top 150 Australian and New Zealand Wines of the Year 2017

Score: 94 Points

Wine review: 'Pepper, game, blueberries and black plums define a savoury and complex shiraz that captures the cool climate elegance of its high vineyard with depth and character. A long and full finish is accurately directed by firm, fine tannins.'

Wine Writer: Tyson Stelzer

Matthew Jukes Top 100 Australian Wines 17/18

Wine review: 'My final wine from this sensational property is the 2015 Block 14 Basket Press Shiraz, which is irrepressibly exuberant and slinky with a fabulous glossy core and highly polished finish. It is a classic example of a great red wine made by white wine experts.'

Score: 95 Points

Wine review: 'Great colour: deep purple/red. A rich, meaty spicy scented wine with velvet soft texture. It has a superb combination of spice and richer fruit characters. Lively acidity refreshes the finish. Good balance. Fine wine.'
