2013 Tranter Shiraz – Ray Jordan – 96pts

“The flagship of the range uses about 50 percent new oak. A small percentage is American but the rest is French. Gravelly graphite aromas with lovely slightly floral notes of black fruit. Balanced and very long in the mouth. Hints of liqueur fruit with dark chocolate. Excellent wine. 96/100. Best drinking: Now to 2026.” Ray […]

“Elegant, stylish wine. Deep and concentrated fruit with supportive gravelly tannins with a hint of graphite character. Deep and generous middle palate with an exceptionally long finish. So well balanced with richness and a seamless velvety texture. 95/100. Best drinking: Now to 2026” Ray Jordan The West Australian July 2016

2014 GSM – Ray Jordan – 94pts

“Lovely floral notes on the nose. The complex mix of savoury raspberry and iron filing characters is quite distinctive of Heathcote. Brilliant vibrant colour, with a bright and lively palate.

A lick of lemon zest adds some interesting palate weight and depth. Nice texture. 91/100. Best drinking: Now to 2019” Ray Jordan The West Australian […]
