Bob Campbell's Review: Dense, deep, high energy syrah, with bright dark fruit, floral, violet, black pepper and spicy oak flavours. The wine has an appealing seamless and silken texture, with subtle sweet fruit restrained by gently drying tannins. Should age well.

Jancis Robinson's Review: 60% whole bunch, fermented in tank with some Grüner skins. French barriques (35% new). Complex nose of smoky bacon, black pepper, lots of rotundone. Light floral note too. Rich but not fat, lots of ripe berry fruit. Like a rich northern rhône, and really smooth. Very pretty and very perfumed but with an underlying sweetness of fruit. Attractively stemmy.
