Reviews/Awards:

JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2012
AAA McLaren Vale Shiraz Grenache 2009 Bright crimson: a very well made wine, synergistically balancing the black fruit and tannin structure of the Shiraz with the red fruits of the Grenache, no money wasted on unnecessary new oak. Screwcap. 14% alc. Rating 94
