The Real Review - Huon Hooke - 93/100
"Deepish red colour with a trace of purple, the bouquet mellow, forward, vanilla-tinged and attractive, with summer berry aromas in the mix. The palate is medium to full-bodied and softly fleshy, supple and with good depth and persistence. Plenty of current drinkability, too. Nice wineL it has penetration and persistence at the same time as impressive elegance."
Review by - James Halliday Wine Companion 2020: “This is very good, but could be better if handpicked with the same devotion applied to the superlative whites. The tannin management, still, is superb. A smooth wave of juicy, currant-clad tannins beam across this savoury wine's midriff, directing it long across seams of sensitively appointed oak (30% new French; 2 years). Finishes with a souse of bay leaf and thyme.” 95/100
