“Pibarnon’s 2021 Bandol Rosé is a slightly coppery, medium-pink blend of 65% Mourvèdre and 35% Cinsault. A juicy, fresh and easy-drinking rosé, this medium-bodied effort delivers ample cherry, melon and lime flavors.” – Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
Interesting herbaceous profile, showing earthy, crushed leaf components and even agave, but without any green, bitter elements. The palate is broad, with red fruited accessibility, and the property’s signature structure and firm tannins. Medium bodied.
Steytler Vision 2020, "Just over half Pinotage with 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot, the 2020 Steytler Vision Cape Blend is juicy, ripe and spicy with a generous and focused nose, with rich and round dark fruit essences that waft from the glass. This fantastic red blend overdelivers and is made in limited quantities. Collectors of generously layered and oak-driven red wines should take note of this juicy and impressive red blend. Its delightfully layered and succulent juicy fruit tones beg me back for more. Bravo!" - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate
Château de Saint Cosme Gigondas Rouge 2020, "70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 14% Syrah, 1% Cinsault. Aged 20% in new oak barrels, 50% in oldervbarrels and 30% in concrete. Organic, cask sample, discreet nose with just a hint of dark fruit and spice. Rich and full on the palate, the fruit ripe and generous. Firm but ripe tannins, the finish just a little drying but will come round." - Jancis Robinson
