2002 Cambrian Rise 'Unbeatable' Paddy Kendler Melbourne Herald Sun
Hanging Rock Cambrian Rise Shiraz 2002
"Winemaster John Ellis has bravely claimed this new Heathcote shiraz "a second wine", blended after the very best material has been set aside for his flagship Heathcote Shiraz ($55). I say bravely because such wines often suffer in the shadows of their more glamorous stablemates. In this case there are no such concerns. It's a delicious drop, with oodles of ripe berry fruit and seamless oak and tannin integration. Yet another indication of the enormous potential of the Heathcote region."
