What The Critics Say
92/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, Ned Goodwin
"Reductive out of the starting gates, this requires a good flush of air in the glass or better, the decanter. Behind the initial beam of camphor awaits kirsch, raspberry and bitter chocolate flavours. A trickle of quenching acidity and assuaging tannins keep things relatively firm in the mouth and on the straight and narrow toward a lingering finish." Drink by 2024
"Strong earthy aroma with a slightly ferrous, rusty note. Juicy and fruity with a baked but not burnt character. Fragrant, fresh and with just enough fibrous tannin to give crunch and bite. 40% Grenache, 33% Shiraz, 27% Mourvèdre. (RH)"Drink 2017 - 2022
