Sam Kim - Wine Orbit


A stunning rendition, the wine shows blackcurrant, blueberry, violet, cedar and subtle tobacco aromas on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate displaying terrific weight and depth. Sturdy and bold, while remaining elegant and refined, it's gorgeously structured by layers of chalky tannins, leading to a sustained, engaging finish. A blend of 45% Merlot, 21% Malbec, 16% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc & 3% Syrah.

Raymond Chan Wine Reviews


Full, deep ruby-red with a purple core, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is full, with aromas of plum, cassis, red berry, cedar, red florals and an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, aromas of plum, cassis and red berry are succulent, entwined with cedar, clove, star anise and red floral details. Finely-weaved, firm tannins provide structure for the succulent fruit, enticing acidity carries elegantly to a long, satisfying finish. This Merlot blend is harmonious, with enticing acidity and lush fruit on a fine tannin frame. Match with meat stew or steak over the next 8+ years. A blend of 45% Merlot, 21% Malbec, 16% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 3% Syrah, fermented to 13.5% alc.

Cam Douglas - MS


An excellent bouquet of dark berries and graphite, sweet cigar scents and wood smoke, stony baked clay soils and violets. Full-bodied, firm and dry with flavours of blackberry and Dorus plums, chocolate and anise led spice package. Firm polished tannins and plenty of acidity set in place a firm structure. Delicious drinking from 2026 through 2035+
