With Croser, Lynches-Bages and Bollinger interests behind this wine, it is no suprise that it has some serious intent. Whiffs of currants, mulberries and oak are appealing but the structure is really impressive.…

Unashamedly fusing Australian fruit and a Bordelaise approach, this has precise distinctive fruit aromas, swanky oak influence, some mint and milk chocolate. The dominant cabernet sauvignon has integrated completely with its minority partners, shiraz and cabernet franc; this has an …
