5 Stars & 19.5/20 Raymond Chan, August 2015 (2012 Vintage)
"Very dark, black-red with youthful purple hues. The nose features rich and ripe aromas of blackcurrants and cassis, the aromatics intense, refined and lifted with mint elements. This has beautiful clarity and purity of expression, the fruit quite ethereal, but none the less penetrating. Medium-full bodied, the palate is beautiful and elegant in proportion, with concentrated and lusciously rich flavours of blackcurrant essence and cassis liqueur. Layers of mint and aromatic herbs unfold, along with fine leaf and eucalypt nuances. The fruit precision is matched by its finesse and refinement. Very fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction supports the fruit, the wine possessing a tightly bound core. The wine flows smoothly and seamlessly, growing in intensity and depth, carrying through to a very long, lingering finish of finesse. This is a refined, seamless Cabernet Sauvignon of great softness, clarity and purity, yet great depth. Match with roast lamb and beef over the next 15+ years. Fruit from the ‘St Andrews’ vineyard, including blocks A60, A10 and A70, plus old vine material from the ‘Lodden’ and ‘Wakefield’ blocks, fermented in Potter fermenters to 14.1% alc., one third of each parcel aged in 1 y.o. and the remainder in 1 and 2 y.o. French oak barrels for 13 months, the wine assembled then given further barrel maturation for over a year."
94/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, April 2015 (2012 Vintage)
"This is a well-structured, medium-weight Clare cabernet. It’s destined to cellar well. It tastes of dark olive, mint, dust and leathery blackberry. Creamy oak is well integrated but flashily applied. It’s firm and sure; it will hold and mature over a couple of decades as a minimum."
