Critics Rating: David Bicknell, James Halliday Wine Companion JAN 2019 95 points 2014 Pioneer - Like the St Andrews, fermented in headless barrels before pressing and retuning for 22 months maturation. In a similar vein, oak is a key feature. It's mature, showing more savoury notes than the sweet notes of a young wine. Lots of brown spice, cedar, cigar box and vanilla sitting with ripe plummy fruit. The tannins are grainy, driving to the long finish.
Wine Fitting: Big Bodied Red
Food Pairing: Beef
