A spice mix of clove, pepper grind, mace and anise greets the nose. Violet, too. Blueberry and iodine sweep across the mid palate, while a thread of tannins weaves a well-defined relaxed finish. An excellent and affordable table wine. Of place. Of variety. Australia should make more honest, savoury, poised and eminently drinkable wines like this. 92 points, Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)
