"I won’t muck about. When I first started drinking it I was thinking “Wow, this is really nice”, then when I noticed the recommended retail price I thought “Holy S%#T!, that’s bloody awesome value for money” I can honestly say this would go close to the best value red wine I’ve come across in at least a year or so. They are totally different wines made for a totally different market. All cool climate Shiraz lovers will appreciate them both but the real fanatics of the variety, like myself, will love the elegance!" -Adrianerdedi.com
