95 PTS

"Grapes sourced from 47 year old dry-grown bush vines at the high part of Blewitt Springs. No additions other than a little sulphur. Michael, the winemaker, has a very nice beard and he puts me in mind of a viking. 150 dozen produced.

Raspberry, plenty of spice, a musk and rose perfume, and maybe some just wet earthiness in the background. Medium bodied, layers of flavour and spice – almost an Indian exotica here – thick and pleasantly chalky tannin, well settled acidity, and all that spice, earth and fresh raspberry closing out a very long finish. Personality plus. It tastes good, and just as importantly, it feels good. Almost Italianate."
