Peppercorns and plums. This wine is awash with the flavours of them. It’s a very good release, forward and fruit-driven, full of running, generous. It’s almost as if the wine comes at you; it has that kind of momentum, that kind of energy. Add choc, chicory and earth notes and you get the picture. Put this on your buy list. - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, 92 Points.
