The resultant wine is a bright purple/black colour. It has a rich and ripe powerful nose with prunes, liquorice, plums and chocolate with nuances of spice. The flavours follow through as suggested by the aromas in this medium to full bodied wine. It exhibits rich sweet fruit in the mid palate, lovely soft supple tannins, seamless integration of oak and a long, lingering finish. The velvety richness of this wine combined with elegance perfectly illustrates why Heathcote is one of Australia's greatest regions for Shiraz.

Wine EnthusiastGlows purple in the glass. This is such an enjoyable wine, though young. Ripe berry fruit flavors are pure and focused, couched only in a light cushion of vanilla. Balanced, harmonious and very pretty; drink 2007-2011.

Wine SpectatorJuicy, lively style has modest depth of violet-scented currant and blueberry flavors, lingering effectively on the long, beautifully formed finish. Best from 2007 through 2015.
