Expert Reviews

Barrel aged for three months. Very appealing complex winey aromas vanilla, milk chocolate, cigar tobacco, over red and black mince pie/Christmas cake like fruit with some subtle slightly spicy aromas. The palate is very long elegant and sustained , medium weight, in the manner of a good Bordeaux with fine tannins, this will partner food really well and the finish has a subtle tannin grip indicating it will age well. This wine has good style and length of flavour.Robert Geddes MW(DEC/2002)

Wine Spectator September- October 2008. 85 points “Very good:a wine with special qualities”
