Vintage 2016: “Bright crimson with purple hues, This displays a rich bouquet of plum, cherry and forest floor and fragrant violets . Full bodied and with rich presence, the palate has abundant flavours of blackberry, early season fresh cherry – all vibrant and energetic with a hint of quality oak. A brilliant modern take on Shiraz.” 96 points -DMWP
Vintage 2016: “Dona meaning ‘the gift’ in Latin. The bright, clear crimson-purple hue and the light to medium body suggest whole bunch fermentation of at least some of the fruit, all adding up to a wine that is ready to enjoy right now or in the next few years.” 93 points – James Halliday
