James Halliday Wine Companion 2021 96 points.
"Machine-harvested, crushed and destemmed, wild yeast-open fermented, 2-3 weeks on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (30% new). Intense black fruits harbour a stream of licorice and multi-spices. There's great length and balance, and you keep returning to the very high quality fruit the vineyard provides. Will live for decades."

Vibrant deep ruby- red to purple.
Aromas of Lifted blackberry and blueberries with a whiff of black pepper.
Rich , warm, smoked meat notes with big, ripe tannins
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were machine-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferments were pumped over twice a day. Post alcoholic fermentation, it was pressed to tank before racking off to barrel for malo-lactic fermentation and maturation. The wine was then blended together, fined, filtered and bottled.

food pairing
Ideal with a heart bowl of chilli con carne.

vintage notes
Perfect growing conditions were on display for the 2018 vintage wines.
Mild spring conditions and a pleasantly cooler than usual summer without rain allowed for slow but consistent ripening, low disease pressure and the complete development of varietal flavours.
