FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
92 POINTS | Halliday Wine Companion
With excellent linearity, the flavours lead to a very long, well-packed finish of liquorice and spicy black fruits. This is a very tightly concentrated, juicy fruited Shiraz Viognier. Approachable, easy going and versatile, Johnny Q will suit any occasion!
Intense youthful fresh ripe berry flavours with spice and pepper fruits with some complexity. Dense, ripe mulberry fruit flavours balanced with spicy oak and ripe succulent tannins.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "This is instantly appealing on the nose showing black/blueberry, violet, cedar, mocha and mixed spice aromas, leading to a wonderfully generous palate that's plump and lingering. Robust and fruit-expressive with attractive complexity, finishing long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2028. "
The winery writes "Deep plum to cherry red. Intense youthful fresh ripe berry flavours with spice and pepper fruits with some complexity. Dense, ripe mulberries fruit flavours balanced with spicy oak and ripe succulent tannins. Serve with a roast rack of lamb or mature hard cheeses. This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further cellaring."
