Beautiful, medium bodied Yarra Shiraz. This is a beauty with lots of red fruit, savoury spices and a long persistence - drinking superbly now. Ian Cook, Five Way Cellars
This year’s is a single vineyard release from Tarraford. Roughly 30% whole bunches, no fining, no filtration.
It builds in the glass quite beautifully. It seems juicy and free-flowing at first but gradually the strings pull tighter. Garden herbs, boysenberries, cloves and red cherries, the balance between its various aspects pitched just so well. It tastes as though it’s hardly trying but that’s what it wants you to think. It’s a savoury Shiraz done very well; it’s going to improve over time rather than merely holding; it’s buoyant and succulent and things like that. 93+ Points, Drink: 2020-2028 – Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
