Tasting Notes

Dark cherry, raspberry, liquorice root, clay, and sweet spice. Firm, dried rose perfumed and packed with ripe red fruits and cherry, plenty of stony tannin here, with a sort of pumice stone feel, serious yet charming. a cranberry freshness to acidity, and a long fragrant finish. Quite a wine! 96pts Gary Walsh - Winefront

Medium to deep red/purple colour, with a humus, undergrowth, dried-spice aroma that is more savoury than fruity, while the palate is similarly drying, savoury and super-serious. Darker fruit flavours are lurking within. Dried cranberry emerged with time in the glass. A full-bodied, well-structured grenache with lashings of fine, powdery, drying tannins. Lovely wine. 95pts Huon Hooke

Pinot with a Mediterranean vibe. Full, but feels ethereal. Firm, but feels svelte. A mid ruby at best. Succulent. A meld of fecund raspberry, root spice, clove, cranberry and rosehip, drawn at the waist by a firm skein of saline, puckering tannin, sandy and pumice-like. The founder of the contemporary grenache zeitgeist. Fine. 95pts Ned Goodwin MW for James Halliday
