RATINGS & REVIEWS

95 points, James Halliday - Halliday Top 100- 'Open-fermented in small pots, then matured in French oak for 11 months. A most attractive assemblage of bright, supple red and purple fruits, the oak hovering but not threatening the fruit, the tannins exemplary, the pinch of spice well selected.'
