Reaching heights of near perfection, '18 was a vintage responsible for wines just like this. Supple intensity, concentration of flavour without a gram of weight, the length of flavour possessed only by very healthy, perfectly ripe and balanced grapes. What a gloriously seamless wine, continuing the proud legacy of Parterre.

Assured and poised, with hints of truffle within the spiced dark fruits and brambly berries. The tannins are fine and the oak spice wonderfully integrated, while the long finish is pretty much perfect. Rating: 96 Points & Gold Medal; Decanter World Wine Awards 2021
Blackberry and boysenberry, sage and mint, fetching floral perfume, baking spice and vanilla custard oak. It’s medium-bodied with pleasing density of fruit, plenty of fine grained graphite tannin, cool acidity, so svelte and composed, with a long pencilly finish. Needs a little more time for the oak to integrate, but the feel of it, its balance and shape, mark it out as an excellent wine. Alcohol: 14%; Price: $50; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2033+; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
Medium-deep red-purple, a lighter density colour for cabernet, bright red fruits and blue, violets and other flowers, beautiful bell-clear varietal character bursting from the glass. The wine is elegantly formed and medium bodied, with fine, supple tannins and lovely balance. Drink: 2022 to 2035; Price: $50.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
Cabernet dominant, but the other Bordeaux varieties are in there in small amounts. It's a tight and angular powerhouse. A combination of deep blackcurrant, bay leaf and iodine on the nose. The palate then kicks in with all its formidable horsepower and grunt. Yet, despite all the power and intensity it retains a poised elegance that is so appealing. Firm chalky tannins and a decent lick of oak complete a very good wine. Rating: 95 Points; Ray Jordan, Wine Guide
