Critics Ratings

Tall, dark & handsome, confidently modern but with classic sympathies. 03 (with 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot) has youthful bouquet cedar, blackcurrants, powerful but smooth tannins: combo of fine deep fruit & structure signalling rewarding maturation over decade or so. Near 2 years oak, 70% new, well carried.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2005, 4.5*
