”Small batches of the best parcels of fruit, matured separately in French oak for 18 months (30% new). Blackberry pie on the nose, this is concentrated and pure in its expression of both Coonawarra (black fruit, eucalyptus and ferrous) and exotic spice. On the palate the tannins are pronounced, and they certainly impact the fruit, but it is clear from the sheer volume of flavour that swells in the mouth that they will be no match in time. They will recede into the tidal wave of flavour and serve only to carry and guide the fruit through the finish, as Helios' chariot drove him across the sky. Inchoate as this is, it will emerge a superstar.”
