Double Gold Medal – China Wine & Spirits Best Value Awards 2021
Gold Medal – Catavinum World Wine & Spirit Competition, Spain
The nature of a caravan says it usually follows but this one has turned that around and has a huge following. Ever popular at Vino Fino, the Caravan packs quite a punch for such a modestly priced wine, with its dark colour, berry jam fruits and a nice dry and spicy finish. If you are buying this to share, get more than one bottle because it will quickly disappear… It's time to get on the Caravan if you haven't already.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Sometimes, the most wonderful creations emerge from random, happy hybrids. Take the cross-pollution of Peloursin and Syrah vines which French botanist Francois Durif discovered. He produced a delicious new grape variety, worthy of his own name: Durif, also known as Petite Sirah. And here begins your journey of discovery: taste the full-bodied, generous and lively flavours, like blackcurrant and plums balanced with spicy toasted integrated oak."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Impressively ripe and perfumed, the bouquet shows dark and purple fruit richness, cake spice, cedar and dark cocoa aromas. The palate displays excellent concentration and opulence, wonderfully supported by fleshy texture and fine polished tannins. Mouthfilling and delectably expressed. At its best: now to 2028."
4 Stars & Best Buy, Cuisine Other Red Tasting 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Immediate density of colour and viscosity are noticeable in the glass. On the nose, ripe blackberry and blackcurrant are present with rustic brambled red fruits. A wine with a big attitude that delivers a monster mouthful of fruit, sweet oak and tannins balanced against bright florals."

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Very enticing aromas of dark red berry fruits with roasted plum and black currant. There’s a a layer of complexity that reminds me of tar and roses with sweet meats. Equally ripe on the palate with a core of red berry fruits and stony earthy flavours. Some moments of baking spices and toasty qualities of oak. Fine dusty tannins and balanced acid line. Well made, lush, fresh and ready to drink from day of purchase and through 2024."
