SILVER and 93-points: 2018 Adelaide Hills Wine Show. 89-points: The Real Review (Huon Hooke) "Light to medium straw-yellow colour, with a strong barrel-ferment aspect to its characterful bouquet; there's an almost marzipan-like note to its almond meal aromas. The palate is ample and rounded, full in the mid-palate and savoury, with lots of oak input. Generous character and flavour for the price."
