97/100 Gary Walsh www.winefront.com.au Posted on 09 May 2017.
“Selected from 6 distinctive parcels from the east facing slope of Roennfeldt Road in Marananga.” Interesting to taste these wines. They have plenty of tannin, well-settled acidity, not a great deal of oak, and a ‘natural’ kind of feel. That is, they’re about fruit (and therefore vineyard) expression, yet also come across with a deluxe/prestige feel. They could even relight the fire of many a lapsed Barossa drinker?
Perfumed and floral, blueberry pie, raspberry, spice, grilled meat, subtle wild herb and liquorice. Full bodied, but not heavy, loaded with succulent red and black berries, distinct ‘mineral’ feel and flavour – pencilly even – fresh but unobtrusive acidity, and layers of thick graphite tannin to temper the bold fruit, closing with lush fruit, a slick of tannin, and alarming length. Strewth!
