Reviews

The co-fermented blend is only produced in years that allow for optimum ripeness of both varieties, so we thank the gods for the 2021 release. Shiraz Cab blends can often be passed up for single bottled varieties, however this 2021 shows why you should reconsider that notion. A gathering of great familiar characters, this is like a dinner party with the perfect selection of guests. Blackcurrant leaf, blue gum logs meet ripe mulberry, plum and peppercorn. Weighty and decadent with the fine acidity to carry all the copious flavours. Another wine for even the fussiest red drinker. 93 points

Opaque core and deep ruby to the rim. Nose lifts with blackcurrant, mocha, and anise spices. A full-bodied red that fills every corner of the palate with ripe black fruits and dark spices. Tannins are sandy yet persistent and it carries good length to the finish. 91 points

- Stuart Knox, Real Review

The Vale’s signature red grape – Shiraz – meets the Vale’s hugely under-rated red grape – Cabernet Sauvignon. The duo make for a dynamic vinous presence in the glass. Shiraz brings a sweet core of black fruits, raspberry and plum with a pastille-like sweetness together with lifted spice. Cabernet makes its presence felt, especially on the bouquet, with a vegetative, leafy intensity, earthiness, briar and bramble. Toasted oak is warm and inviting, a great vehicle for the two grape varieties to shine. Fine tannins make their presence felt, albeit woven discreetly. 90 points
