Reviews

94 points (5 Stars) - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Varietally pure and classic, the perfumed bouquet shows sweet raspberry, dark plum, floral, anise and roasted nut aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is silky and flowing. The wine delivers terrific fruit power, while remaining elegant and refined, finishing persistent and velvety. At its best: now to 2025.

 

94 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix

Aromas of raspberries, along with confectionary, floral tones complete this complex nose that is true to style. Bright ruby red vibrant, clear and bright in colour. Once in the mouth you get the full complexity of the balance between fruit, acid and tannin, finishing of long a wine to be enjoyed. Cellar for 5+ years to get the best of this wine.
