5 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"The 2013 vintage  is a top debut. A powerful, dark red, it was estate-grown in the Redstone Vineyard, in the Bridge Pa Triangle, harvested at over 24 brix, barrel-aged, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Still very youthful, it is sturdy (14.5 per cent alcohol), with generous blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours in a very concentrated but accessible style, with gentle acidity and tannins. Deliciously rich, savoury and soft, it should mature well."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2015 (2013 Vintage)
"Full, near saturated, black-hued purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is full and densely packed with very ripe aromas of dark raspberries and black plums, along with fragrant spices, earth and pepper and pencilly oak. This has real depth and considerable presence. Full-bodied, the palate features rich and densely concentrated, plush and sweetly luscious flavours of black plums, dark berry fruits, chocolate and oak vanillin, with subtle earth elements. The fruit is opulent and mouthfilling, with balancing powdery tannin extraction and structure, forming a firm core and line. Some alcoholic power, warmth and generosity adds to the body and weight, and the wine carries to a strong, powerful and concentrated finish of sweet black and red fruits. This is a powerful, sweet-fruited Tempranillo with fulsome structure. Match with slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 7-9 years. Fruit from the ‘Redstone’ vineyard, Bridge Pa Triangle, destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine spending 19 days on skins and aged approx. 18 months in 20% new French oak."
