Reviews & Awards

“Highly varietal and highly delicious.”

“Grown on vines planted in 1995. 25% new oak. Highly varietal and highly delicious. Pear, apple and steely stonefruit characters burst onto the palate and swing persistently through the finish. Juicy flavour aplenty, and length to impress. Needs another year or so in bottle but it’s very good.”
Cambell Mattinson, The Wine Front, April 2019
