"A well-priced import from Vintage House that possesses a respectable slurp factor. A 70/30 blend, a minerally drive sits at the core. Barbecued meats, bark, ferrous notes and fine black pepper all mesh together. It's quite savoury driven with the soft fruit highlighted by raspberries and mulberries feathered with dusty tannins to close. Find a piece of protein and you're in the right place. Drink now to five years." - 89 Points, Qwine
"This value Frenchie tastes like it spent a gap year in the Barossa and came home reeking of Antipodean sensibilities. Swathes of red and black fruits dominate the nose and the palate, delivering raspberry conserve and stewed black plums with all the nuance of a BHP diesel mechanic on holiday in Bali. Full flavoured, with a satisfying intensity there is just enough tannin to stop you from feeling you’re eating jam straight out of the jar. Who says you can’t teach an old poodle new tricks?" - Erez Gordon, Carboot Wines
