"Emphasis is on the mid-palate but it still manages to hold its form all the way through the finish. This is a handy red for drinking now; its berried flavours, dusty overtones and clip of sweet oak all work seamlessly and to positive effect. Good to drink."
90 points SILVER - 2020 Halliday Wine Companion
"This version is clean, well-fruited, fresh and highly drinkable. Tick, tick and tick. It’s a neat wine. Mid-weight, fleshed with fruit, tannic-enough, slightly dusty, and more-ish. There’s a lick of sweet coffee-like flavour and it works a treat in context. Nice one." Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
