96 Points James Halliday
A worthy addition to prior vintages of this unique wine. It is only medium-bodied, but has a quiet insistence that brooks no argument, opening proceedings with the fragrant spicy/earthy/red fruits triptych of the bouquet (oak doesn’t seek to dominate at any stage). The medium-bodied palate is supple, perfectly balanced and has great length. In many ways, this could be argued to be the ultimate distillation of Australian red wines made over the past 155 years.
