Awards and Reviews
“The gentle basket press approach has worked so well with this variety in this excellent vintage. It has resulted in such a soft and beautifully palate-friendly wine. Plummy spice notes with a hint of clove and dried herbs. Has a vibrancy and energy that lifts the palate. A very contemporary style. Cellar 11 years” 93/100 Ray Jordan
