We tasted this wine this past fall and were serious about getting it. Simon Hackett, the wine’s maker, spent time learning how to do things with Peter Lehmann and Grant Burge, and some winemakers need to learn from him too! From McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, this value champ shows bursting fruit, restraint and intensity— the latter two often missing from value priced wines. The front of the wine explodes with fruit and flavor and then it settles down to a seamless texture, integration of some spice and earth and a lengthy finish.
