Double Gold Medal China Wine & Spirits Awards Best Value 2015
95 points Peter Muscet, Australian Wine Showcase Magazine, July 2015
95 points – Wine Showcase Magazine (April 2014) “Superb nose packed with fruit and spice. Dark brooding colours in the glass with generous palate of red fruits and berries give the wine a silky mouthfeel.”
95 points – Wine Genius (April 2015) “WOW what an incredibly delicious wine… a tour-de-force indeed. Deepest black in colour with a profoundly energetic fruit profile, with soaked black cherry, mulberry and wild rose. Fully bodied and highly textural, with raw oak, cigar box overtones and tremendous natural acidity. Only time will tell exactly how good this wine is.”
94 points – James Halliday’s Top Cellaring Selections (May/June 2015)
94 points – James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2016, p. 755 “The inky colour reflects the single-vineyard blend of shiraz and durif (aka petite syrah). It's all about raw power or, if you prefer, Z-Force (Z-Force was a specialist allied forces unit that operated behind enemy lines in World Ware II, specialising in guerilla warfare). Sombre black fruits. licorice and earth are the drivers, tannins present, of course, but not the least aggressive; the curious outcome is a fullbodied wine that, with the right food, is approachable now.”
