Description

"Includes small amounts of petit verdot, merlot, cabernet franc and malbec, matured in used French oak for 18 months. A fresh, lively medium-bodied Bordeaux blend, tannins and oak unimportant. Elegance and purity are its watchwords." 95 points, James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2020

"Deepish red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet shows a lovely harmony of violets, blueberry, cedar and tobacco, the palate medium to full-bodied and savoury, well saturated with smoky, toasty oak-matured complexities. Great flavour and harmony, balance and length. This is uncannily Bordeaux-like, St-Émilion for my money. A classy wine…” 95 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

"Includes a little Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.  Blue and black fruit, cocoa powder, tobacco, some mint and violet in the mix.  Medium-bodied, crisp acidity, almost a cranberry crunch to it, along with a tightly knit tannin, some toast and earthiness, attractive perfume on a long firm finish.  Very stylish.  Wait for it." 94 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
