97 points “It’s all about putting the spotlight on fruit from a dry-grown centenarian vineyard in Light Pass. I love this. It’s a commanding wine. It oscillates between deep, dark, spicy fruit to savoury, meaty flavours. It’s long and pure, with poised yet determined tannins. I doubt mataro gets any better than this. Respect.” Jane Faulkner Halliday Wine Companion Aug 2020
95 points “Deep, dark brooding red colour with a good tinge of purple, and a bouquet which is reserved and brooding, spicy and smoky, with a hit of char-oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied and deep, with generous ripe-fruit flavours in a savoury spectrum, solid and statuesque and far from the simplistic fruity styles of mataro. A core of sweet black plum. Richness, fleshiness, concentration and satisfying weight, ending in a long and firm-tannined aftertaste. A very smart mataro. (250 cases made).” Huon Hooke The Real Review Feb 2020
94 points “It’s a wine with crusty earth characters flying around a core of leathery, redcurrant-like fruit. It has refreshing-but-balanced acidity and an even glide of fine-grained tannin. Given time to breathe its quality becomes clear. There’s a wet red rose/violet aspect to this wine too. It’s quite beautiful. Frankly it’s hard to find a wine from this producer which isn’t.” Campbell Mattinson The WineFront April 2020
