94 points, 5 Stars, Sam Kim Wine Orbit, April 2019

90 points - Outstanding: A wine of superior character and style, Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier, April 2019

“High impact bouquet packed with aromas of sweet grass and tropical fruits, fruit spice, some barrel ferment, roasted fruits and burnt butter. Dry weighty wine on the palate with flavours of yellow stone fruit, roasted pineapple and wood spices. Light creamy texture, plenty of acidity and lengthy characterful finish. With or without food - a lovely wine. Drink now and through 2022.” Cameron Douglas MS
