Best of the Best by Variety  – ‘The Oddball’ Saperavi is in the top Other Reds
‘Black Blood II’ Church Vineyard Shiraz 2010 – 95 points
“The colour is not quite up to that of the of the other Single Vineyard Shiraz, but the texture and flavour profile of the full-bodied palate is quite different; here you’ll find sombre black fruits and bitter chocolate emerging the moment the wine enters the mouth; the finish is distinctly savoury, the tannins playing an important role in balancing the alcohol.” James Halliday
‘Black Blood I’ Cellar Vineyard Shiraz 2010 – 94 points
“Bright crimson; the luscious palate is lively and fresh, with nuances of black cherry and liquorice to go with the foundation of blackberry, plum and dark chocolate; the length and balance are good despite the alcohol.” James Halliday
‘The Oddball’ Saperavi 2010 – 94 points
‘The Oddball’ Saperavi 2009 – 93 points
2010: “Deep, dense purple-crimson; floods the palate with red and black cherry, warm spices and fine, soft tannins; carries its alcohol with ludicrous ease.” James Halliday
