5 Stars, 93/100 (Sam Kim)
“A beautifully composed Bordeaux-style red.”

92/100 (Decanter World Wine Awards, London 2023)
“Bright cassis, plum and tart blackberry with an emergence of savoury spice; ripe and rounded with a black pepper finish.”

90/100 (Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review)
“Quite dense colour with merlot-dominant sweet, ripe plum flavours together with a background of cassis/blackcurrant, liquorice, black cherry and wood smoke supported by gently tangy acidity.”

4 Stars (Michael Cooper)
“Certified organic, the 2021 vintage (4*) has deep, youthful colour. Full of drink-young charm, it is mouthfilling, with strong plum, berry and spice flavours to the fore, a hint of blackcurrants, savoury notes adding a touch of complexity, supple tannins and a smooth finish. Best drinking mid-2023+.”
