2019 The Sabre Pinot Noir

Sam Kim review – 95 Points

“A wonderfully styled pinot; the fragrant bouquet shows dark cherry, roasted nut, olive and floral characters with a hint of savoury complexity. It's concentrated and refined, offering gorgeous fruit purity combined with flowing mouthfeel, finishing impressively long and expansive. At its best: now to 2029.”

2020 The Dagger Pinot Noir

Sam Kim Review – 93 Points

“Delightfully elegant and bright, the inviting bouquet shows sweet cherry, thyme, almond and subtle mushroom aromas, leading to a finely textured palate delivering pristine fruit flavours together with silky mouthfeel and polished tannins. At its best: now to 2025.”

2019 The Cutlass Shiraz

James Halliday Top 100 Wines 95 Points 

”Adelaide Hills and Shiraz are having a public love affair, exemplified by this brightly flavoured pepper and spice cherry fruits, on a very complex palate that’s just within medium-bodied bounds. Its 50% whole bunch fermentation adds fine, savoury tannins to the long finish.”

2020 The Katana Chardonnay (new release)

Reveals a supple core of white stone fruit and citrus blossom overlaid with tempered edges of minerality. On the palate bright varietal fruit is guided to the finish with nuances of French oak and crisp acidity.

2020 The Stiletto Pinot Gris

Sam Kim Review 94 Points

“Gorgeously ripe and elegantly lifted, the bouquet shows white flesh peach, fig, poached pear and floral aromas, followed by a wonderfully focused palate delivering excellent concentration and length. It's refined and linear, while offering delectable flavours."
