Awards and/or Press Quotes
Jancis Robinson 17/20. ‘Pinot-like in its transparency of colour and perfume. Chewy, sharply etched red fruit on a palate stretched as tightly as an artist’s canvas on a frame. All structure and tension at the moment, underlying complexity promising much more when this relaxes its grip a little. Long, dry, tobacco-leaf finish. Drink 2018-2025.’
Decanter World Wine Awards Bronze Medal
Gilbert and Gaillard Gold Medal
Wine Advocate 89 Points. ‘Shows lots of Syrah meatiness and dark fruits as well as medium-bodied richness, good acidity and a balanced, clean, thoroughly enjoyable style… Another high quality red from this estate’ Drink 2016-2021.
