Natalie's Score: 92/100

Love it! Minty cool on the nose, then a big vibrant, juicy attack o the palate. You won’t be daydreaming after a sip of this: it’ll pull you right back into the now. Full-bodied, juicy and generous, just how I like my friends.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Jason Solanki reviewed this wine as follows:

Warm aromas of mint, eucalyptus, wet earth. Flavours of sweet red fruits (raspberry and cherry), herbs, pepper. Medium-bodied. Screw-top. Very uncomplicated. A good wine, but probably doesn't warrant the rating of 91 points given by Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh of the The Big Red Wine Book. Will be having this with one of my favs - simple rice and lentils dish with chaas (yogurt mixed with water, salt & cumin) called khichdi.
Has a robust honesty about it. No tricks, just dark, rich, warm fruit flavour. Tastes of peppermint, sweet fruit (plums, cherries and raspberries), pipe tobacco, a touch of pepper and a whiff of vanilla. It feels slightly desiccated – if you try hard you’ll find flavours of salted beef here – but it still manages to fully satisfy. Excellent winter drinking. Will impress all comers. Drink 2010-2013.
