Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW - 8th August 2017
Medium crimson. Fresh but over developed leather. Tobacco leaf aromas. Still holding up with supple red fruits, light tobacco leaf flavours and fine lacy tannins. More curio than a great wine, but the beginning of an important modern Australian wine tradition. 11% Alc 87 points Now-past.
