96 points James Halliday (Wine Companion): "It runs excellence up a flag pole and allows it to fly freely from there. We step straight into effortless territory here, the flavours of grapefruit, pear, custard apple and white peach tipped subtly by notes of flint, spice and meal. Everything rolls and flows as if it were preordained. Peak design, perfect execution. Tasted 01 Oct 2018. Alcohol 13%. (Aug 2019)"

94 points James Suckling: "There’s some real complexity here from the get-go with overtures of apricot essence, peach pie, mangoes, papaya, ripe apple crumble, vanilla and spices. Full body with no shortage of fleshy tropical fruit. This is pretty strong on its balancing act of fine acidity with the textured layers and spices. Finishes long. Drink now or hold. (8/14/18)"

Producer notes: "The trademark characteristics of the wine produced on our site are understated power and length with a mineral finish. The wine has a great fruit expression that is well integrated with French oak. The soil characteristics have come through in the style of wine we have today. The palate is fine but firm, with great acidity, texture and length. This wine is rich in flavor, yet very refined."
