"96 Points. Part hand, part machine-harvested, open-fermented with a portion of whole bunches, matured in French oak (27% new). An almost perfumed bouquet, ultra-expressive, and an elegant medium-bodied palate of remarkable intensity and clarity, red fruits intermingled with black, the tannins silky smooth. Screwcap. 13.8%. To 2037. $33" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

"Strong regional pepper character, dark plummy fruit scents, a touch of espresso/dark chocolate. Generous introduction to start the wine. Lithe and fresh to taste, medium weight, tightened with a corkscrew of silty tannins, brooding dark fruit flavours jostling with cola and peppery spice. Sinewy, formed and shapely, long, elegant, lip-smacking goodness. This is an outstanding release of this wine. Rated: 93 Points Tasted: AUG18 Alcohol: 13.8% Price: $33 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2026" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front,.
