Bright ruby red color with a fruity and fragrant nose with aromas of cherries and blackcurrant. The finish is supple and round; with a well integrated freshness. A charming wine, harmonious and easy to drink.
"This is very floral with blueberry, fresh-currant and currant-bush aromas. Crushed stones. Medium body and creamy, lightly chewy tannins with citrus and blueberries. Tangy and pretty. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 94 points, James Suckling
"Solid, with dark plum and currant fruit forming the core, while tobacco and iron accents add bass and cut through the finish. Has the fresh cut of the vintage." 93 points, Wine Spectator
"Fresh and juicy, this wine is quite a change in style for this estate. The wine’s fine tannins are impressive, giving richness as well as succulence. Drink from 2023." 92 points, Wine Enthusiast
"No frost affect at this estate in 2017, and the wine starts out well, majoring in bright dark fruits, but again this is extremely austere and needs time in the bottle to soften. Clear spice that once unfolded contributes to the excellent aromatics and the backbone suggests good ageing ahead. On the reductive side now, with notes of violet and rose." 92 points, Decanter
