To bring together
Top 100 of 2022 & 95 pts “85 per cent old bush vine (part 100yo) grenache fermented with 1/3 whole bunches, 50 per cent matured in used French hogsheads, 50 per cent in stainless steel, for 8 months. A vibrantly fresh, red-fruited light-bodied wine; what it lacks in body it more than makes up with its elegance and length.” James Halliday, Top 100 Wines of 2022 Weekend Australian November 2022
95 pts “Deep red/purple colour, with a lovely raspberry and floral bouquet that’s full of charm and this transfers well to the palate, which tastes elegant and unforced. There is abundant fruit sweetness in the heart of it, the tannins are ripe and supple and swaddle the wine in layers of savoury fine-grained tannins that harmonise superbly. A great grenache-driven blend and a bargain!” Huon Hooke, The Real Review 12 March 2022
92 pts “Even with its user-friendly style, this wine delivers. It’s fun but a little bit serious too, with a blend of plummy, red liquorice fruits with nice touches of spice and earth, with fruit generous and ready to go. The palate is more in the jubey spectrum with fleshy red and dark fruits with an attractive earthy, spicy edge plus quite a long and delightfully silky finish. Great early-drinking style.” Andrew Caillard, The Vintage Journal, May 2022
