Dark Ruby red in colour. Spicy and peppery on the nose with a touch of red licorice. Barely medium bodied palate showing red cherry, spice and pepper. Love this cool climate style of Shiraz - this from the Porongurups just to the north of the town of Albany in Western Australia. Had a tasting with the winemaker, Rob Diletti, on Christmas Eve 2019. A very skilled winemaker and wine show judge in high demand around Australia. — a month ago

Very pleasing wine. Vanilla and cinnamon hit the nose first. Lighter bodied than usual but the balance is beautiful. Recommend. — a month ago
