94pts Mel Moore, WinePilot “...pronounced cassis and redcurrant aromas over layers of dried leaf and chocolate and vanilla creaminess from oak maturation...". 


Best in Show Trophy 97 pts - Decanter World Wine Awards 2023 

“...dark, opaque black-red in colour, with very fresh woodland aromas seasoned with a little spice. The wine is dark and intense in character, it's fruits mingling with plant sap, earth and gravelly stone; there's ample soft tannins to give the wine dignity and food friendliness; and despite the overall freshness it still contrives to convey a sense of beguiling warmth and sweetness at the very end. Appetising, high-definition, and with near-invisible oak, this wine is very much on the pulse of it's region.". 


95 pts The Vintage Journal - Andrew Caillard MW

96 pts Melissa Moore “aromas of freshly squashed blackcurrants and redcurrants plus leaf and tobacco, and notes of dark chocolate and subtle, savoury notes of dried oregano. The wine is plush, medium-bodied, ripe and silky smooth...
