'Displaying an appealing red claret colour with an intense centre and a ruby rim. The nose showcases complex aromas including ripe red and black berry fruit with hints of creamy cassis, cedar wood and toasted oak. The wine enters the palate with incredible purity and focus. Flavours are those of dark cherry, blackberries and ripe plum skin. Sumptuous and full there is a pleasant hint of spice on the mid-palate which leads to fine, firm tannins on the finish.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage 'Even in a trickier, drought-affected vintage, the Director's Reserve Red delivers the goods. Built around a core of minerality and dense tannins, this medley of Cabernet Sauvignon with 31% Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec has lovely freshness and flavours of balsam, blueberry and coffee bean. 2022-32.' – Tim Atkin MW, 2021 SA Report, 95/100

'Cab (69%) still leads but 2018 is a 5-way Bordeaux-blend, unlike 4-part previous. Refined & elegant as ever, with muscular power & pure fruit effortlessly harmonious. With 22 months in 54% new French oak, made for cellaring - larger-format bottles ideal.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'A rich, dense, earthy red with black plum, vanilla spice, freshly-tilled earth, and a hint of olive.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 92/100 (Silver)
