James Halliday's Top 100 wines of 2022, 95 points - The Australian
"This is a three-dimensional wine, the bouquet and palate both attesting to its varietal roots, and taking the opportunity offered by the great vintage, the herbal nuances on the finish adding charisma to the equation."
"The top 20 wines of 2022" - Max Allen, The Australian Financial Review

"The pioneers of Australian sangiovese have delivered again. The 2021 entices with sweet cherries, vanilla and thyme on the nose, leading to a palate infused with cherry and raspberry flavours. Beautifully balanced, with savoury notes emerging as you linger. Medium-bodied; fine but firm tannins give the palate great length. A sangiovese to fall in love with, from some of the oldest sangiovese vines in Australia. Mushroom risotto an obvious pairing."
The Australian, 2 August 2022
"A top vintage for this wine, I reckon. Juicy cherry, dried herbs and flowers, a little vanilla and cedar oak. It’s medium-bodied, bright and pops with cherry and raspberry, an earthy and dried herb savouriness, cranberry freshness to acidity, a little chew to firm chalky tannin, and a long and satisfying finish. It’ll really hit its straps in a year or two. 94 points"
Gary Walsh, The Winefront
"Deep red-purple colour; youthful but layered bouquet of wood oil, smoky berries, cranberry uppermost; a hint of wood-smoke. There is good intensity and vivacity on palate with energising acidity that adds extra firmness to the tannins. Well structured as a food wine. An honest, dinky-di sangiovese. 93 points"
