Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This delicious Cabernet/Merlot sits perfectly on any table. It shows attractive aromas of dark red fruits, being plums and berries. It is velvety smooth and packed with plum and spice flavours."
94/100, Number 10, 45 Great Buys for Bordeaux Lovers, Decanter April, 2020 (2016 Vintage)
Rated ahead of many of the 'big names' from around the world and cartainly by far, the best value
"Deep, dark and brooding, with inky fruit flavours. Lots of dark conserve-type fruits, some oak in the background, and despite 15% alcohol, good acidity to keep everything in balance. Surprisingly for a Clare Valley Cabernet, there is lots of depth and complexity. A very appealing style".

"Sweetly scented aromas of baked strawberry tart, blackberry and spicy oak with a subtle herbal infusion on the nose. It's supple and juicy, offering waves of tasty flavours and a lingering smooth finish."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"It is gorgeously expressed on the nose showing blackberry, cigar, cocoa, anise and cedar characters, leading to a succulent palate that is opulent and complex. The wine offers terrific fruit richness and generosity, wonderfully framed by polished tannins, finishing superbly long and attractive. At its best: now to 2022."
