Awarded 94/100 Points & 5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2021
Awarded 4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper

This is a complex and intriguing wine. Aromas of rose petal, red berries and grilled meats are compelling. The wine is round and mouthfilling with a red fruited profile, but a firm tannic backbone provides complexity and length. Raised in old large format barrels the wine has little oak flavour, instead showcasing the beauty of its unique site.

"Beautifully composed and elegantly perfumed, showing Black Doris plum, spiced cherry, olive and toasted nut characters. It's succulent and supple on the palate with excellent weight and roundness, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and polished tannins. Gorgeously harmonious and elegant with a lengthy spicy finish. From the Heipipi The Terraces vineyard. At its best: 2023 to 2034" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2021

Alc: 13.5%
