Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Sourced from our Brookby Hill Vineyard in the Southern Valleys, the grapes were hand harvested and partially de-stemmed before undergoing 50% wild fermentation. 30% whole bunch clusters were added to the ferment for an increased lift in aromatics and structure. The resulting wine was aged in 25% new and seasoned French oak barrels for 11 months. The wine was unfined and unfiltered.

Dark crimson in colour, the bouquet has lifted floral aromas of violets and wild thyme combined with red fruits and a savoury earthiness. The palate has crushed raspberries and bright red cherry flavours interlaced with forest floor, coffee bean and bramble nuances. Velvety tannins and firm structure will insure this wine ages gracefully."

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Made from grapes grown in the Southern Valleys, the wine is impressively complex on the nose showing dark cherry, spiced plum, cedar, game, mushroom and floral aromas, followed by a plush palate that is filled with delectable flavours and silky texture. The wine displays excellent fruit purity together with seductive spicy/savoury nuances, finishing long and flowing. At its best: now to 2021."

93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Ripe, fruity, varietal and inviting bouquet of Noir. Aromas and flavours of red cherry and plum, some youthful tart cherry and rhubarb notes. Very youthful with plenty of acidity and an abundance of fine tannins. Persistent, tense, youthful and lengthy finish. Just needs time to settle and develop more friendships with all the attributes in play. Drink from 2020 through 2028."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage is a single-vineyard red, hand-picked in the Southern Valleys, matured for 11 months in French oak barrels (25 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. A graceful, bright ruby, supple wine, it has strong, youthful cherry and plum flavours, woven with fresh acidity, and an inviting fragrance. Best drinking 2020+."
