Awards and Reviews:

“Only a very small batch of this wine has been made, which is a shame because it is a good example of what can be done with malbec. Perfumed notes of red fruit with a seductive violet and bright blue fruit.”
95 Points –  Ray Jordan – Cellar Talk, The West Australian  –Published 2nd September 2021.

“Hand plunged, basket pressed and matured in French oak barriques. 900 bottles only. Savoury licorice and salted heirloom tomato on the nose. The role of oak is dominant here, both on the palate and through the finish. No doubt it will sink into the folds of ripe black fruit in time.”

90 Points –  Erin Larkin – James Halliday Wine Companion 2022 –Published 13 August 2021
