The latest reviews for the Kurtz Family Vineyard collection by Sam Kim from Wine Orbit May 2021.

Boundary Row Shiraz 2018 – 94 points – 5 stars
It’s wonderfully ripe and elegantly complex with blackberry, spicy oak, vanilla and pepper spice aromas on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate delivering richly textured mouthfeel combined with fine tannins, making it generously flavoursome and structured at the same time. Very long on the finish with plenty of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2030.

Boundary Row Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2018 – 93 points – 5 stars
Beautifully fruited and inviting on the nose showing dark berry, vanilla, warm spice and floral aromas, leading to a succulent palate that’s silky and fleshy. Delectably expressed and soothing with delightful ripe fruit flavours. At its best: now to 2026

Seven Sleepers Shiraz 2019 – 93 points – 5 stars (Available Soon)
This is fabulously expressed and enticing, showing blackberry, toasty oak, game and dark chocolate characters, combined with generously weighted palate that’s plump and silky. Upfront and comforting with tempting flavours. At its best: now to 2030.

Seven Sleepers Red Blend 2018 – 92 points – 4.5 stars
This is sweetly fruited and perfumed showing black/blueberry, dark spice, floral and roasted nut notes on the nose. The palate is equally attractive with lovely weight and rounded mouthfeel, finishing long and silky-smooth. A blend of Cabernet, Shiraz and Petit Verdot.  At its best: now to 2026.

Seven Sleepers Red Blend 2019 – 90 points – 4.5 stars (Available Soon)
It’s fruit forward and inviting on the nose with Black Doris plum, sweet cherry, vanilla and toasted almond characters with a subtle spicy nuance. The palate displays succulent fruit intensity together with smooth texture and well balanced tannins, making it flavoursome and friendly for everyday drinking. A blend of Cabernet, Shiraz & Petit Verdot. At its best: now to 2027.
