Other Reviews….
I don’t know the percentage (of each variety) but in the glass they’ve got them exactly right. The tang and earthen complexity of pinot noir, the push of red berried/plum-shot shiraz fruit through the centre. It feels both complete and satisfying – in the context that it’s mid-weight at most – with just-enough polish to give it a bit of class. There’s elite winemaking/growing at play here. Drink 2023-2028.
