“…The fruit is perfectly ripened with good weight and intensity; fine-grained tannin contributes to a supple, silky mouthfeel along a herbaceous and meaty direction. This is an elegant, black-fruited Syrah with a poised structure and fine barrel details. Match with herb-crusted lamb and venison over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, destemmed, lightly crushed, fermented in small open vats to 12.68% alc... 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2021.” Candice Chow

“Just 75 dozen bottles were crafted of this wine which was sourced from Guillaume Thomas’ own tiny vineyard on the Waimarama Road east of Havelock North. It’s a gorgeously floral, fruit-stacked style that oozes softness, elegance and (if left in the glass for a few minutes) shows a sexy, tweak of tobacco on the finish. The tannins are fleshy and elastic, not grippy or grainy. The acidity is fresh and soothing and accentuates the soft, black pepper, cocoa and blueberry layers.” Yvonne Lorkin
