What The Critics Say
17+/20 Jancis Robinson MW
"Very deep blackish crimson. Treacle-toffee nose. Quite firm and dry on the end. Savoury finish and really very serious. Long and lots of fruit even though it clearly has the framework for ageing. Real vigour and muscle. 64% Shiraz, 21% Grenache, 15% Mataro. Old vines and old oak. Acidity 6.1 g/l, pH 3.6. 12 months in seasoned French and American oak hogsheads." Drink 2017 - 2028
94/100 Andrew Caillard MW and 93/100 Tyson Stelzer
Winemaker notes on current vintage
"NOSE: Grenache driven aromatics – despite this variety representing only one barrel in fi ve of the blend! No oak to speak of… Cherry/strawberry fondue aromas somewhat indulged by a spray of fairy fl oss/sherbet dustiness. A more down-to earth cold meatloaf savouriness, although some persuasion required to aromatically detect aspic jelly? PALATE: Medium-bodied. An ethereal lightness (literally) – avec gloss and sheen. Refined. Structurally perceived as an initial (enveloping) outer husk of berried fl avours and tactile mouth imprint/attaque, followed by a mid-palate burst of fruits. This palate package is wrapped within a weave of seasoned oak, adhered via crisp acidity and tannins." Drink 2016 - 2025
