(2012) Muscular, closed, deep and dramatic, this has terrific sweet fruit combined with excellent structure and length.
(2012) Multi-varietal, this is very Australian in style with a touch of volatility and copious black fruit. Massive chocolaty presence on the palate.
(2012) A little too much dry extract but otherwise a lovely wine, concentrated, but harmonious.
(2012) Good Sauvignon character, with elderflower, a touch of lychee and good fruit if a touch dilute in the finish.
(2011) Barrel sample. Lovely fruit, with spicy layer of soft oak, but the fruit is bold and fresh; a really good, relatively straightforward Syrah at this stage, but with terrific zest and clarity. Lovely, with fine tannins and wonderful balance.
(2011) 60% Merlot. Big, sweet, quite plush nose, with plummy red fruit and some vanilla. On the palate quite grippy, slightly tougher than the Shiraz, slightly more drying tannins, but still a very good wine with structure. Quite a powerful style.
(2011) Lightly herbal notes, again good, crisp, lithe and lively fruit. Slightly less concentrated on the palate than the 2008 andjust lacks a little of the density. Still a crisp, fine quality Syrah. Sophoclese says this had only been bottled for two weeks at time of tasting.
(2011) Sophocles explains this grape was traditionally found in field blends, used with Mavro to add body and colour. It comes from a plot of 50-year-old vines and has a distinctive, resinous, herbal and earthy nose. The palate has really good fruit and gamy qualities, and it has excellent balance with quite a fine tannin.
