THE PICTURE SERIES
2022 Sexy Beast – McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon
“Inky purple hue, opens with plush ripe blackberry and black plum. Big rich and plush on the palate, offering plenty of bright mulberry, blueberry fruit leading to a long juicy finish. An open-knit, opulent style. Now-2030.” – 93 Points
2022 Yesterday’s Hero – McLaren Vale Grenache
“Mid-ruby in colour for this modern expression of McLaren Vale Grenache that immediately approachable, thanks to luscious layers of cherry liqueur, new leather and liquorice all sorts wrapped up in a silky cloak of oak. Generously fruited with supple spice layers of red liquorice flavours chiselled tannins helping to provide good definition to the finish. 2024 – 2029.” – 92 Points
