Awarded 93/100 Points & 5 Stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019
"Offering excellent value, the deeply coloured 2016 vintage (4.5*) is a Hawke's Bay blend of Merlot (42 per cent), Cabernet Franc (30 per cent), Cabernet Sauvignon (20 per cent) and Malbec (8 per cent), matured for a year in seasoned oak barrels. Fragrant, with a gently spicy bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with generous plum, berry and spice flavours, oak complexity, and good freshness and vigour. Drinking well now, it should be at its best 2021+" Michael Cooper, Sep 2019
"Very attractive bouquet with familiar aromas of a classic red blend (Bordeaux) showing off graphite and dark berries, baking spices and sweet toasty oak. A seamless transition of flavours to the palate with dark berries and plums, cloves, tobacco and toasty vanilla wood. Youthful, spicy and packed with flavours that reflect the nose, medium+ tannins and acidity, balanced and well crafted. Drink now and through 2025. Decanting suggested" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier
