3½ STARS
"Offering great value, the 2018 vintage (3.5*) is a regional blend, mostly hand-picked and matured in French oak barriques of varying ages. Ruby-hued, it is mouthfilling and supple, with cherry, plum and spice flavours, some savoury notes adding complexity, and lots of drink-young appeal."

"Toasty, smoky and fruity bouquet of Pinot with aromas of toasty vanilla oak scents, some oak smoke and char then cherry, red apple and plum. Dry, tense, firm, youthful and varietal with flavours that reflect the nose, firm chalky tannins and layers of wood spice and acidity to add texture and length. Well made and ready to enjoy with food. Best to decant for service. Ideal drinking from late 2019 through 2024." AUG 19
