What the experts say:

91 pts, Georgina Hindle, Decanter, April 2022

“Exotic spices and rich dark chocolate on the nose. Smooth and Supple palate with a sappy drive of black cherries and plums given energy by vibrant acidity. Well balanced and juicy, with a strawberry and fresh mint tang. Bright and energetic yet this also has an understated charm with clear terroir markers in the well-controlled mineral tannins. No chaptalisation.”

90 pts, Jane Anson,, April 2022

“Pencil lead, chalk, blueberry, raspberry, limestone scrape, a touch enthusiastic its tannic bite, but good quality in a difficult year.”
