Plush & deep from the get-go, with violets, dark cherry, plum melding seamlessly across a palate that silky, tight & loaded. Beautifully weighted in the mouth, the wine is cloaked in firm yet fine tannins, with the structure marking it an instant classic Quintet. Tasted alongside six back vintages including an ethereal 1988 (the first Quintet), the 2016 affirms its position as one of Australia’s very best wines. Highly recommended. - Todd Slater, FWC.
