92pts "A breezy six months in old French oak puncheons and around 15% whole bunches. I dig these sorts of wines. They're more about fruit purity and slurpiness than structural architecture. The Omnia Nova delivers nicely with spicy, plummy fruits in the blue and purple spectrum, some hints of orange rind, purple flowers, light amaro-tones and a dusting of cocoa powder. Built for drinkin' not thinkin'.” - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
92pts "Omnia Nova – all become new – is old vine Barossa shiraz made in a ‘nouveau’ style. It spends a brief stint in oak before promptly going into bottle and into the world. It has that ‘just made’ feel to it. It’s like tasting direct from a barrel/tank at a winery; it has that uber freshness, that ribald fruitiness, that blinding immediacy. It’s a wonderful impression for a wine to make. Plums, cloves, mints and assorted sweet spice characters make for a high energy, highly delicious red wine. Yes please. It’s a great drink. ‘Nuff said." - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
92pts " A peppery and energetic shiraz with notes of peppercorns, fresh blackberries, thyme and bay leaves. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and fine tannins providing a fresh and precise frame." - James Suckling
91pts "Super clean and bright fruit. Polished and clean. Green peppercorns and green olives with molten chocolate, gunflint, cherry, cranberry, rose petals, velvet and a little burnt orange zest. Lithe, crunchy, bright fruit forward fun. Irresistible and juicy. Dark edged, slick texture with the right amount fruit tannin grip and a little waxy phenolics. Summertime red, maybe even a chill." - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com
