Glorious. Touch of floral boys, with smoke, hedonistic bacon fat, black pepper, but with great acidity. With a tart, developing red fruit content I want expecting. The notes don't do it justice. The length and complexity on the finish is hard to describe. One of the best Australian wines I've had.

Plum, "berries" black cherry, blackberry, baking spice, savory, prune, mint, eucalyptus, a little Brett. Very fruit forward. Spices, tea. M- acid, M+ body, m tannin. M/m+ finish and complexity. A bit of sweetness from the oak perhaps...

Like motor oil in texture, this was huge and a little over the top. Meat, smoke, blackberry liquor, a beast of a wine.

The Viognier is seductive, feminine. Beguiling on the nose with a hint of eucalyptus. Big. Palate starts floral with layers of primary black fruit and secondary notes of tar and chocolate. It was my wine, and the Viognier virtually unblinded me, but it was my #1, group's #3/4 tie. Spectacular, no need to wait with 90 min decant. Big Oz Red Smackdown.

Was picked out blind by a fellow taster. 2003 so it has some age, pleasantly surprised as I have not had an Australian wine in some time.

Hostess cherry pie. A bit big for my tastes but clearly very well done!
