THE WINE FRONT – Campbell Mattinson, January 2005
A great drink, full of flavour, warmth, life and lift. Both the nose and palate are terrifically perfumed, floral and raspberried, with a punch of tannins and lots of fruity flesh to sink your teeth into. A good, chewy, warm wine. Rating: 89 Points
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH – FOOD & WINE with Jeff Collerson 6 August, 2003
Grapes from this came mainly off two bush vine blocks planted 80 and 100 years ago. Grenache is a good blender and is used that way in the Chateauneuf-du-pape reds from France. When made singly it often disappoints, but not in this case. It is juicy and supple with peppery spice.
