"Quartz-green and bright. Strong leaf and green bean pungency, plus spicy whiff of smoke and flint underneath - the result of partial barrel fermentation, which has also added some creamy textural notes mid-palate. Drink by 2023" David Bicknell, 2020 Wine Companion

"A ‘serious’ nose with great funky characters mixing with nettle-like aromas. A beautifully balanced palate that has lovely drive and intensity of varietal flavours. 5-stars" Winestate Magazine, May-June 2019
