This is great……and here’s why!James Halliday 90/100
International Red Winemaker of The Year (1992 and 1994)
Prestigious Jimmy Watson Wine Trophy
James Halliday ~ "Open-fermented, hand-plunged, extended maceration, new French oak ... Worth the punt on a few years in the cellar at this price."
The Winemaker ~ "Lifted fruit, delicate sweet spice and subtle French oak. The palate is elegant with rich plum, dark cherry and long fine tannins. "
