James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020, 1st August 2019
Estate-grown cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, the certified organic vines  33yo.  A breath of fresh air, pulling my lip up and out of the Dante’s inferno of other wines in this particular tasting.  Supple and immaculately balanced: every flavour, texture.  Beautifully nuanced fruits that are 100% within the varietal makeup.  The tannins almost lustrous, so fine are they.  98 Points (Top points – Cabernet Blends)

Mike Bennie, WBM, March/April 2019
A tour de force of elegance and poise, offering deep concentration, finesse of tannin, exceptional length of flavour and a cool restraint.  Cassis, garrigue and faint cedar mesh well in the bouquet while the palate echoes cassis through its long draw across the palate.  Ultra fine Cabernet here, and a charming drinking experience ensues. 95 Points.

Imagine Daniel Craig as James Bond, strolling onto a super yacht in Monte Carlo. That’s the same kind of effortless cool and style that you’ll find in this red blend from riesling master Jeff Grosset. Only 6,000 bottles were made of this cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc blend which is a gentle but intense with dark berry flavours, minerally hints and a soft, smooth finish. This comes from the highest, coolest site in the Clare Valley and is a wine of impeccable balance. It is also unfined, so is suitable for vegans.
