93 points James Suckling: "An impressively complex nose here with a very fresh and juicy, red-cherry and berry nose that offers such alluring style. The palate has a succulent and juicy feel with a plush, toasted-spice and ripe, red-cherry core. Made from organically grown grapes. Firmish finish. Try from 2021. Screw cap. (10/16/19)"
Producer notes: "The flagship from Two Paddocks – an organically grown barrel selection from the estate properties. In 2018 this wine was produced from the four Neill family vineyards, 27% The Fusilier (Bannockburn), 22% The Last Chance (Alexandra), 29% The Red Bank (Alexandra) and 22% The First Paddock (Gibbston). These small sites are high-density planted in a range of clonal material cropped to under 5 Ton per hectare with most vineyard practices carried out by hand. Tasting Notes: This wine shows black currant, ripe red plum fruit and spicy aromatics following through to a rich plush but elegantly textured mouthfeel with great density, persistence and poise."
