Specialising in luxurious & award-winning Bordeaux-style blends.The winery itself was nominated for best ‘New World Winery of the Year’ by Wine Enthusiast in 2011 and has established an iconic following.

They aim to ‘create an environment where vines produce flawless fruit and then guard these grapes as they are gently steered from vineyard, to cellar to bottle’.

Critics Ratings

‘Glossy top-ranker, acclaimed both sides of the Atlantic. 57% cabernet sauvignon leads the Bdx ‘Big 5’. Coiled, smoky aura of 2006 offset by deft fruit weight; persistent tail underscores quality, echoing refinement. Yr 50% new Fr oak, tad Am.’  Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 5*
