Medal: Double Gold

"An elegant wine with a classical structure. There is a good core of fruit, balanced with savoury tones. The tannin frame is appropriate for the body and fruit weight of the wine. Supple and gorgeous. Bright acidity and commendable palate tension. Great flavour on the finish."
Toni Paterson MW | 97 Points

"Fragrant bouquet, vanilla, toast, blackcurrant and cedar. Well-structured showing fresh acidity, plentiful chalky tannins and an elongated palate. Superb length. Cedary complexity to the finish."
Andrea Pritzker MW | 97 Points

"Medium powered cabernet with attractive cassis/ dark plum roasted walnut aromas, Fien slinky textures and vanilla notes. Finishes firm with plentiful dark fruits."
