91pts "A grenache mourvèdre concoction for chilling is obviously a very good thing. It's packed with red cherry and juicy plum fruits with a touch of blood orange, some bunchy spice and amaro and another whole bunch of "pourmeanotherglassness". Great fun drinking. We need more of these styles." - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
91pts " It’s a smashable red that tastes just smashing. It’s made with Barossa grenache and mourvedre and it’s kind of mid-coloured and mid-flavoured, if that makes sense; it’s not rose-like but it’s not full-bodied either, its cherry-plum-earth-anise characters running friskily through the palate, offering just-enough texture and decent-enough depth to keep everyone happy. Great style of wine, and well executed." - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
91pts " A bright and juicy red with aromas of peppercorns, raspberries, cherries, cinnamon and oranges. Soft and supple, with a medium body and a rounded, fruity and delicious finish. Cool fermented whole bunch grenache and mourvedre." - James Suckling
90/100 "Lovely deep, garnet hue. Signature floral potpourri and rose petal, cola essence, red berries and earthy blue gravel. Plush and slurpable up front with easy structure, just enough grip, a crunchy finish and a good tang of peppery stalky spice. The fruit quality is evident without sacrificing the fun." - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com
2020 90/100 "Pale ruby to purple colour in the glass. Redcurrants and rose petals on the nose. Bright, juicy and crunchy on the palate. Built more around acidity than tannins for structure. A unique and quite delicious version of grenache. Would be best served with a little chill." - Stuart Knox, The Real Review
Deep cerise to toffee apple red in hue. Cool, herbed nose with red currant, blue plum, hints of cola, gravel and floral potpourri. Crunchy and vibrant palate with just a hint of grip but plenty of cut. A cheeky and delightful wine" - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com
