Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Attractive and vivid red cherry colour with violet undertones, this varietal of Tempranillo shows licorice and red fruit aromas. On the palate it presents pleasant polished tannins. Round and balanced, with a tasty and fruity finish."


Yvonne Lorkin, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Here’s a fresh, feisty new tempranillo that oozes masses of dark cherry, cocoa, liquorice and dusty earthy notes on the nose and palate, but don’t be expecting a smooth, lazy sip, hell no.  It’s a muscular, sinewy sip that takes no prisoners on the texture front, so expect chewiness and a burst of black olive and soy on the finish."


91/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Quite a rich, gutsy red with bright, fresh berry and violet flavours that dominate spicy oak influence. A backbone of moderately firm tannins balances any fruit-and-alcohol sweetness giving a dry and rather spicy finish. Good value at this price."


4 Stars & 17.0+/20 Raymond Chan, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Very dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly firm with ripe and sweet aromas of red berry fruit entwined with a layering of dark herbs and subtle notes of earth, unfolding savoury dark-red florals. Aromas of black cherry and berry fruit emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly rich, up-front and juicy, uncomplicated flavours of cherries, raspberries and plums along with subtle notes of dark herbs and earth. This has lifted florals and hints of confectionery from whole berry fermentation. The flavours are up-front, succulent and mouthfilling and are supported by supple tannin grip with soft acid liveliness. The flavours carry to a juicy, fruity, aromatic finish. This is a sweet and juicy, upfront Rioja Tempranillo with cherry raspberry and plum flavours with confectionery lift on a supple palate. Match with tapas, pasta and barbecued fare over the next 3 years. Tempranillo fruit from Rioja fermented to 13.0% alc."
