Review of the 2018 vintage below;

"94/100. The type of wine which could see you get comfy in a chair and only rise up when you run out. Such a delish slurp and then some. Tim Smith knows how to Grenache, that's for sure. Juicy red berry fruits, licks of blueberries and ribbons of fine spice send you into a spin. It's dripping in pleasure and screams for big pours. Not over-complicated by any means, it's just a damn good drink. I enjoyed the 2017 release of this wine, but I'm liking this one that bit more.Go hard to find this. Drop it in the fridge in warmer months to take the edge off it to increase its already high versatility. Well played Mr Smith. Drink now to five years." - Steve Leszczynski, qwinereviews.com

This wine has great floral notes of strawberry fruit and fennel. The palate is medium bodied and fleshy, with more of the strawberry fruits and creamy texture, and finishes with fine fruit tannins.
