Julian scored this wine: 90/100

Spiced black cherry, liquorice and violets along with mushroom exhale from the glass. On the palate, there is more cherry, red plum, fig, cocoa and just a hint of oak. The medium-bodied wine is silky smooth with ripe tannins and a long finish.

Julian scored this wine: 89/100

Straw yellow colour. Passionfruit, lychee, honeydew melon and light floral notes. Pink grapefruit on the finish. Brought back memories of Passionfruit Pavlova Cake from my visits Downunder. Paired really well with Roast Port Tenderloin and Tuscan Vegetables. A fantastic value at $15 and change.
