'Oldenburg's spectacular vineyards in Banghoek are equally well suited to Rhône and Bordeaux grapes. This stony, intense, tapenade-scented Syrah proves the point with notes of blood and roasted meat, bramble and blackberry fruit and stylish 14% new wood. Drink 2022-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Slight jam/wine gum edge to black fruit on 2017 (4 stars, 88 pts), accentuated by vanilla from 14 months in 30% new oak, but also-tasted 2018 sees return to/improvement on understated elegance of 2016 (4 stars, 89 pts), only 14% new oak allowing wild forest fruit & fresh herbs to shine.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

'This wine displays a lovely purple hue, with a dark core. The nose is inviting with aromas of cloves, brambles, blackcurrant and mulberries. This Syrah shows a tannin structure that is both grippy, and smooth and silky. A delightful acidity provides the perfect backbone for the aromatics of this beautiful wine. Purple lavender flowers, coffee beans and dark chocolate are found on the palate with a long finish of sour cherry.' – Winemaker
