This is a typically elegant, compact Mount Mary red with great cellaring potential. Modest in alcohol at 12.9 per cent, it has a bright, young colour and aromas of violet and blue and red fruits. Lively acidity contributes to its fine, driving backbone and great length. Good drinking now or in the next 3-23 years. Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine, April/May 2016.
