95 out of 100
by Campbell Mattinson
"A true Bordeaux blend, with Cabernet Sauvignon as the driver. Made mostly from vines planted in 1963 on this beautiful, and unique, Yarra Valley vineyard.
Composure is an underrated virtue. The balance, the grace, the unhurried feel; the cool, dripping juiciness, like cutting into a succulent after a burst of summer rain. This is all mint and boysenberry, cocoa and blackcurrant, mid-weight at most but with an even, flowing feel, like evening wear, light, perfectly tailored. It has charm galore, of course, and the more you look the more intricate its pattern seems. A delight of a wine. Timeless" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
