What The Critics Say
93/100 Huon Hooke
"Deep purple/red colour, with a quite herbal aroma, which is lightly floral also; young and fruit-driven, with a trace of reduction. The tannins are very firm and grippy, the wine is full-bodied and bold, with good concentration and depth of flavour. A rich, fruit-sweet core and a cleansing tannin finish. Excellent. (1920 bottles made) 22 APR 2019." Drink 2019 - 2031
93/100 Toni Morrison
"Dark cherry fruit with accents of liquorice and clove. Fleshy and bright is the palate with extraordinary intensity. The fruit is velvety and plush, and is centred on the mid-palate. Ripe integrated tannins help define the palate and the palate finishes with pleasing savouriness 20 MAY 2019." Drink 2019 - 2027
