2021 Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon
“A plush cabernet that is nevertheless detailed, refined and taut, driven by a salty, iodine-clad fortress of tannic compression. Savory over anything sweet. Dried sage, black olives, graphite, anise and currants run long across a detailed structure, palate-whetting and gorgeous. Drinkable now, but best from 2030.”

96/100 , February 2024

“Vineyard planted in the 1930s, Blewitt Springs. Reynella clone.

GW: Blackcurrant, blackberry, pencils, black olive, a little mint, paprika, maybe? Full-bodied, deep, intense and savoury, a saline edge too it, all the dark fruits, including blueberry here too, and black olive, thick graphite tannin, balanced acidity, with a very long finish. This is throaty Cabernet in full flight. Superb. ”

2018 Sandown Cabernet

“We ignore cabernet and cohorts from the Vale at our peril. This maritime iteration, lifted by elevation and fine geologies, is very fine. A smoother sheath than its BDX sibling. Yet a rattle of gritty mineral precision is similarly defining its core. Full weighted, yet almost ethereal, so deft is the extraction. The oak, all class. Blackcurrant, mulberry, mulch, pencil shavings and porcini dashi laden with umami. Thickens as it opens, ladling kirsch, black olive and sage across the super finish. Settle in and nuzzle."

2020 Sandown Cabernet

“This is good. Angular of tannin, the oak at the forefront; a little soupy, too, with scents of smoked meat and charcuterie lathered with sage, dried blackcurrant and a swab of black olive paste. Yet as it sits in the glass, and I cogitate on this and the meaning of it all, it coalesces. A distinctly (very) warm-climate wine that will, I believe, age well. Time is on the wine's side and mine. Dense, sure, but there is an uncanny freshness and welcome poise. "

2021 Domaine Clarendon BDX

"This is a vastly superior wine than many a claret, even higher-tier efforts. A superlative medium-bodied wine for the money. Clay loam, tomato leaves, stewed plums, dried kelp and graphite. Subdued, savory and taut in the very best sense, with no restraint on the flow of fruit. So good. If only Bordeaux at this price was anywhere near as good. Drink or hold."

94/100

2012 Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon

Medium to deep garnet/purple, the 2012 Astralis (Shiraz) starts off with complex, meaty and earthy aromas wafting around a core of blackberry preserves, preserved plums, and mulberries with hints of licorice, Chinese five spice and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the multi-layered flavors have very spicy accents and are framed by ripe, grainy tannins. It has a very long and elegant finish with hints of exotic spices.

2018 Sandown Cabernet Sauvignon

"This has real depth and concentration, as well as purity of cassis and dark-cherry fruit with an overlay of roasting herbs and bay leaf. Distinctive cabernet. The palate has distinctive freshness and sanguine, powerful tannins that carry some cocoa powder-like tones. Fine and dry finish with bright, fresh acidity. Black-fruit finish. Drink over the next decade."
