This youthful wine is great a expression of the variety in Great Western. It is possible to enjoy this wine now with food, but it will soften and gain complexity over the next 5-20 years.

Scores & Reviews

95 / 100

James Halliday

"A blend of cabernet sauvignon with a small portion of merlot, cabernet franc and shiraz. Comes fully formed into the world in every respect, and ready to go. So composed and nicely poised with cassis, black olive, plum, well-measured oak and ripe, supple tannins. Hosts a serious density, too, which adds up to one stunning wine for the price."

94 / 100

Stuart Knox

"Garden mint, curing meat and ripe plum aromatics. Good black fruit drive and sits in the pocket with dry earth, tobacco leaf and salted-blood savoury elements. Seamless in its flow, tannins well resolved, and a slip of brightening acid just adds to its drinkability. Only medium-bodied yet intense and focused. Lot of wine for the price"

93 / 100

James Suckling

"Aromas of redcurrants, blueberries, violets and cedar sit fresh and lively with some lighter, herbal threads. Fine and supple tannins deliver attractively fleshy blueberry and plum flavors. Impressive balance. Drink or hold."

93 / 100

Campbell Mattinson

"Blueberry, licorice, kirsch and cedar. A sprig of mint. Look at the value on this. Cool but ripe, dusty and varietal but generous. Honed. Slipped with fine-grained tannin. All good things. All done well."

Ralph Kyte-Powell

"Deep in colour, it offers mellow varietal aromas, rather than the edgy scents of young cabernet from some other places. Plum, blackberry, blackcurrant, leafy and earthy notes flow into a smooth, juicy mouthful of medium-weight and gentle structure. It’s a cabernet that’s surprisingly easy to drink young, but it should develop well medium-term as well."
