97 points James Halliday (Wine Companion): "From two very old low-yielding Barossa vineyards, one in the Northern Barossa, one in the Eden Valley over 150yo, open-fermented with a small number of whole bunches, matured in used French oak for 12 months. The marriage of ancient vines and modern skills in the winery has produced a remarkable grenache at the forefront of the revitalisation of the style. It is powerful and intense, yet the flavours are in the fresh red spectrum with a savoury crosscurrent of fine, dusty tannins. There is no confection, no Turkish delight anywhere to be seen. Alcohol 13.5%. Drink By: 2031. (8/1/18)"

93 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$60 list] This vintage expresses the variety's typical bright raspberry, cranberry, blueberry combo but laced with notes of dried leaves, nutmeg, cumin, white pepper and graphite. The palate is restrained and beautifully balanced, with soft, savory, sandy-textured tannins, a tart raspberry crunch and a mineral, hot stone spine. Drink now–2029. Alcohol 13.5%. (Apr 2019)"
