TASTING NOTE: The 2017 took my fancy. I like this 2018 too. It's basically juicy with berried fruit flavour but it's just a little rugged too, in a good way. Some tannin, lots of fruit, some shape and a satisfying finish. Excellent buying. Drink: 2019-2024. Score - 91 (Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au, Oct. 1, 2019) Price $ 18.95
