The wine shows a complex interplay of aromas and flavours. There are the primary elements derived from the fruit, suggesting lemons, limes, green-gages and peaches. These are intertwined with whiffs of wood smoke, barbequed sweet corn and grilled bacon. It has a soft palate entry but then gradually seems to expand in the mouth to become rich and full bodied. A back-bone of minerality and grapefruit-like acidity keep it tight knit and focused, drawing out its length. While ready to drink on release it should develop a range of additional nuances with careful cellaring.

95 Points - Bob Campbell

A leaner and more elegant style than the usual blockbuster Pegasus Bay style but with at least as much complexity. Quite Burgundy-like with lovely toasted nut, brioche, mineral, citrus and spicy oak flavours, Very long. Good now but will age well.
