Tasting Notes

Bob Campbell MW, bobcampbell.nz, November 2018

Beautifully aromatic with perfumed black cherry fruit and a hint of pepper. The palate is sleek and refined, compact and very pure with lovely black cherry and raspberry fruit, and some graphite/charcoal undertones. Great concentration but nicely poised with purity and elegance, and incredible prettiness. It’s tannic but the tannins are so refined and well integrated. Ethereal and quite profound.

Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, November 2018

This is in such elegant, suave and regal form in 2017 with white pepper-dusted, fresh summer berries, graphite, deeper woody-spice notes of cardamom and cloves and swirling perfume. The palate has a super fresh, fleshy and detailed feel with a wealth of bright, juicy and crunchy fruit on offer with such fresh, juicy and succulent tannins, carrying bright, lively blackberries with precision and intent. Impressive. Best from 2025.
