Expert Reviews

Rated: 90 Points Source: Sam Kim, www.wineorbit.co.nz

"Youthful, vibrant and fruit expressive, the beautifully lifted bouquet shows blackberry, blueberry jam, floral and spice aromas with a hint of chocolate notes. The palate is juicy and flavoursome, and delivers pristine fruit flavours and silky texture, elegantly structured by fine tannins. Up front and friendly. At its best: now to 2020."
