Awards & Reviews:  

92pts: "Balance, texture, flavour and length ... all things are in place here. The fruit is on the salted-raspberry end of the spectrum, the tannins are fine and structuring, and the length of flavour is spot on. A lovely wine. Drink by 2027." Erin Larkin, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion.
