'..Good hue; spicy black fruit aromas flow into a palate with great drive and energy to its mix of black fruits and strongly savoury notes, in turn fuelling the great length of palate..'
James Halliday's Wine Companion 2010

'..This Central Victorian Shiraz Viognier sports a handy layer of fragrant complexity ahead of cool Eastern spice dark berry fruit.  Clever winemaking has worked this into swanky shape, the tannins roll fine and smooth, mocha-scented oak finishes the ride..' Nick Stock, Wine 100 May 2009

BLUE-GOLD Award Winner & Top 100 Wines of the Competition 2012 Sydney International Wine Competition
‘..Dark crimson colour. Intense black pepper aroma. Complex rich plummy notes. The palate showed tremendous balance. Lovely primary fruit and a long finish. Fruit sweetness rather than sugar sweetness. The great complexity in the wine married well with the complex flavours in the food..’ Ken Dobler, Judge

BLUE-GOLD Award Winner & Top 100 Wines of the Competition 2011 Sydney International Wine Competition
‘..Very bright looking colour. One of those appealing, spicy, peppery, forward lifted noses. It has that modern, bright punch about it. Spicy pepper with excellent balance. With the food, some clean, simple and terrific flavours are left in the mouth. A fantastic wine..’ Mark Robertson, Judge

McPherson Family Series Cabernet Merlot 2010

  • Dec

90 Points
'..Light, bright purple-red; if you really wish to taste (and drink) cabernet merlot, and are happy with a light-bodied wine, you can't miss this. Its red berry fruit is the core, but there are slightly savoury foresty characters to take the wine into light food territory. And you don't have to wait for it, least of all cellar it.. Drink by 2013..'
