James Halliday "A blend of sousao, graciano, touriga national, tinta cao and tempranillo, a blend to end all blends in this idiom. The clear, bright colour leads into the fragrant berry and spice aromas of the bouquet; the next step is the medium-bodied palate, most impressive is the way the silky tannins have been handled."
Chris Wilson, Decanter "Dave and Anne Mazza lived and worked in Spain for a number of years and set up Mazza near Donnybrook in Western Australia with a selection of Iberian varieties brought back to Australia. The Cinque uses five of these varieties; Graciano, Tempranillo, Tinta Cão, Touriga Nacional and Sousão. It’s a glorious muddle of Ribena, black pepper, strawberry and black olive. Supple but not over-extracted, there’s a real freshness and zing here."
