Tasting Notes

Elevated old-vine Clarendon sourcing. Intense aromas of molten cherry liqueur, orange amaro, bergamot and cranberry. A fine vinous pulse, drawing the fore with the aft. Long attenuated filigreed tannins, sandy to be sure, but very fine. This is exceptional grenache that, with a few others, sets the regional high tone. 96pts Ned Goodwin MW for James Halliday

So exotic. So much spice and perfume. Cherry and berry pie, apricot, roast beef and roses. Juicy flavour, lots of spice, oranges, dense and tightly wound tannin, citrus peel and zesty tang to acidity, generous flavour but with a bony feel, very long with fresh raspberry and dried herb in the aftertaste. There’s a minor level of warmth here, but nothing of concern. Give it a little more time in bottle, and it will shine like a ruby. 95pts Gary Walsh - Winefront

Bright, medium to full red/purple hue, with cherry-pip and sneaky spice aromas. The palate is full-bodied and firm with refreshing acidity underlining the trim but gently assertive tannins. Great balance: an excellent grenache. Lovely fruit expression here. The acidity seems high for grenache but it works well. 94pts Huon Hooke
