'Saboteur wouldn't be Saboteur without 15% alcohol, but this cuvée of Shiraz with 47% Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache (the last from the 2018 vintage to provide some freshness and lift) is full-bodied rather than over-ripe with red berry and Mediterranean herb flavours and well-handled 40% new wood. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Adds some grenache noir for first time in 2017, for Rhône-style blend with dash cab. Structured yet delicate red fruit with white pepper & mace on the nose, tight tannins which will soften with time. More oak than 2016, 40% new, 19 months, better ageing prospects.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'Dark red appearance and full colour to the edge. All spice and brooding dark fruit on the nose. Rich cassis, cinnamon and cloves towards the finish. Palate has dark juicy fruit on entry. Broad spicy cherries and dark fruit with a decadent mid palate, full bodied with hints of ripe strawberries. The finish is dry, rich and full.' – Niels Verburg, Winemaker
