Share this wine:

Matured for 11 months in 228-litre barrels, 23% new. Struck-match reduction before citrus and oatmeal on the nose. The palate has immense depth of fruit and bright acidity before a savory finish. Very well balanced – great definition, texture and verve.

  1. 87

    Pine needles, apricot, stonefruit, roasted walnut aromas with flinty notes. Oily palate with pronounced oak and fresh acidy.

  2. 95

    Intense and complex bouquet of grilled nuts, struck match and nectarine. Round, full-bodied and rich, excellent intensity, power and length. Superb nutty finish. Hint of oxidation on the finish.

  3. 92

    Bright, zesty aromas. The palate is mealy and layered. The winemaking influence in this wine is strong – and perhaps a touch too strong. I would have liked to have seen a little more fruit.
