"This is a great Quintet, one of the best in fact. Here’s a wine that combines such elegance, power and polish to a level seen in the best wines of Bordeaux in the best vintages. Aromas of blueberries, cassis and mulberries are framed in cedar and fresh, leafy cabernet tones, as well as violets and forest wood. Some subtle oak spice here, too. The palate is so seamlessly layered with ultra-fine tannins that carry pristine blueberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant flavors. Concentrated, with pitch-perfect balance. Acidity imbues the finish with freshness and vitality. So elegant and unwavering. A Yarra Valley First Growth! Delicious now, but try from 2027 and for a decade after that."

"Deep, bright, glowing purple/red colour, fresh and youthful. The aromas are superbly ripe and varietal at the same moment, summoning violets, black, red and blue berries, the palate likewise tremendously intense and precise, focused and pure, the oak pretty much invisible. An exquisite fragrance! The wine is medium to full-bodied and beautifully flavoured and structured, the finish long and even, the tannins soft and harmonious. A wine of effortless grace and beauty."
