"This wine is rich and full of dark berry fruit and smooth tannins. Tar, blackberry, spice and mocha on the nose. Spice and blackberry on the palate and finish. Full bodied with some acidity."
"Aromas of apples, bananas and light piecrust. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a simple finish."
"Rich wine full of berry, pepper, and spice aromas with red with purple hues. Ripe berry flavors and hints of spice develop on the full-bodied yet elegant palate. This wine has soft tannins and a lingering refined finish. Pair with fig and gorgonzola toasts."
"Deep purple, almost opaque in colour with an expressive nose of black fruits, pepper, cinnamon, spice and violets. A seductive palate of dark hedgerow fruits, very open and welcoming with an explosion of fruit and spice. Mineral undertones."
"Esprit de Flore is a well-balanced wine with a lovely roundness. Red fruits dance from the glass and the tannins are lithe. The finish reveals cranberries, strawberries and the slightest hint of liquorice. Esprit de Flore is easy to drink, and ready to drink now."
"Opaque, perfumed with fragrant black cherry, cassis and spice. Full bodied, intense with countless layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cedar and graphite. Dense fruit on the palate is bound by a structure of fine grained tannins and a lively acidity. This wine shows great depth and character and yet is refined with a long, elegant finish."
"91 Points- Wine Enthusiast. Delicate flavors of baking spices like cinnamon, allspice and ginger light up this very dry, firm-textured bubbly. Vivid acidity keeps it light and lively. Plenty of citrus and green apple notes and a refreshing dryness make the mouth water."
"92 Points- Wine Enthusiast. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish."
"This Cabernet Sauvignon was made with fruit sourced from select vineyards within South Eastern Australia. This is a classic example of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon packed with rich, ripe berry and black currant varietal characters supported by integrated oak flavors and fine tannins."
"93 WA. Medium to deep garnet in colour with a touch of purple, the 2010 The Steading is a Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (Mourvedre) blend that radiates a gorgeous nose of dried mulberries, kirsch and red currant jelly enhanced by a baking spice undercurrent. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated on the palate, it has a medium to firm level of velvety tannins and enough acid to give lift through the long finish."
