Michael Cooper (4.5 Stars)
“The 2017 vintage is ruby hued with strong berryish, spicy, nutty flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and a firm finish.”
Sam Kim (94 Points, 5 Stars)
“The wine offers gorgeous fruit intensity with seductive savoury nuances, showing spiced cherry, ripe strawberry, olive, game and toasted almond characters on the nose. It is beautifully weighted and rounded on the palate, displaying silky texture backed by fine grainy tannins, leading to a persistent delicately dry finish.”
