"Deep crimson-purple; a wine humming with activity, red and black fruits contesting for first place, the latter winning. But there's much more to the wine than that, with spice, pepper and a lingering savoury acidity that works to perfection." James Halliday

"Substance, satiny texture, style; this has the trifecta. It's not the brightest grenache on the catwalk but its woody anise notes, fragrant herb and earth characters help make up for it in personality. Sweet fruited but not to an excessive degree; same judgement can be made of the alcohol. Clearly the quality of the grenache fruit itself here is high."
