92 points Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion. "Old-vine grenache off Kevin Schild's vineyard in Vine Vale; 30% whole bunches. A light ruby colour and fragrant aromas of raspberry, red plum and cranberry fruits dabbed with exotic ginger spice, light amaro tones, dried citrus rind and pressed flowers. Airy and spacious with a meaty, savoury flow across the tongue, light chalky tannins tugging at the roof of the mouth and a lively, lacy line of acidity"
