'The value verging on the absurd. With black fruits in the ascendant, impressive tannin structure and flavour complexity. Licorice and bramble also appear on the finish and aftertaste.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • The youngest of Frank Potts the second’s eleven children, Lloyd Stanley (Sticky) Potts, was a motorcycling enthusiast all his life. In 1932 he entered his first Australian Grand Prix at Philip Island and came second. The front label depicts a young Sticky practicing his speedway “Broad-Side” turns.

    This wine shows the harmony of these three varietals with plum and blackcurrant fruits, typical chocolate character from the Shiraz and boysenberry spice from the Malbec.
