“Hand-picked from three vineyards on 17 Feb, 6 and 25 Mar, the parcels open-fermented with 20% whole bunches, 5-6 days cold soak before wild yeast fermentation, matured on fine lees in used French puncheons. As close to perfection as you are likely to come with McLaren Vale grenache. The perfumed bouquet sets the scene for the silky, supple red-fruited palate, superfine tannins always present, oak flavour absent. Has many of the characteristics of a great pinot noir.” - 98 Points, James Halliday

“Medium to deep red with a purple tinge. The bouquet is raspberry jam-like and sweet, bold and ripe and not showing development yet, while the palate is full-bodied, soft and rounded, with ample soft tannins and good richness. The length is superior and the wine is all-round satisfying. Very good - even decadent.” - 95 Points, Huon Hooke
