'Maiden vintage of a single-variety Cab from this property and it’s very nicely judged. Matured for 18 months in 300-litre oak barrels, 40% new. The nose shows red and black berries, violets, some leafiness and vanilla while the palate is medium bodied with pure fruit, fresh acidity and ripe tannins, the finish long and savoury.' – Winemag Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2020, Top 10
