'Broader and more textured than its Sandstone partner, this is a little more compact and brooding in its youth, but will reward cellaring. Spicy, savoury and well balanced, it unfurls flavours of black cherry, earth and redcurrant in the glass, supported by fine-grained tannins. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'Partial spontaneous fermentation before maturation lasting 11 months in a combination of new and older oak. Slightly subdued aromatics with hints of red berries, musk and some spice. The palate is medium bodied with good fruit concentration, bright acidity and powdery tannins. Tightly wound, this needs some time to settle down.' – Winemag Prescient Pinot Noir Report 2021, Top 10 (91/100)

'Layered and textured truffle savouriness and earthy forest floor interwoven with concentrated black cherry compote, harmoniously supported by mineral textured tannins.' – Catherine Marshall, Winemaker
