TOP VALUE BUY, The Real Review, reviewed by Nick Butler, May 2019, www.therealreview.com
'Red rims affirm the freshness of this, otherwise, purple wine. There's a hint of cassis, with dark spices and red berries more dominant. The palate is soft and fruit is allowed to sing. Juicy and bright, with acidity in check. Great value'
BEST VALUE BUY, Winestate Magazine, July/August 2018
'Aromas of cherries and dark chocolate with a powerful ripe palate with firm tannins and vibrant flavours.'
VINTAGE PROVENANCE AWARDS & ACCOLADES
