Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"It is a dark plum colour with dark berry and ripe cherry aromas. The palate is round and generous with medium tannins and well-balanced acidity. Some black pepper spices add to the complexity of the wine."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Pristine and beautifully perfumed, the wine shows dark cherry, raspberry, violet and toasted nut characters on the nose, followed by a wonderfully supple palate delivering succulent fruit intensity together with silky texture, finishing long and gorgeously appealing. At its best: now to 2026."
Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2020 Vintage)
"Distinctive bouquet centering on a mix of toasty smoky French oak scents, dark cherry and vanilla, some plum and black currant moments. Fruity, dry and youthful on the palate with flavours of red berries and plum to reflect the bouquet. Moderate toasty oak levels with a clove and vanilla flavour, moderate tannins and acid levels swinging back to fruit and oak on the finish. Well made and ready to drink upon purchase and through 2025."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"Offering top value, the 2020 vintage was matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (18 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, with fresh cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing very good vigour and intensity, lively acidity and a finely poised finish. Best drinking 2023+."
