Raymond Chan 5 Stars!
"This is the most beautifully refined 'Le Sol' to date. It has elegance and finesse, with intense black fruits, minerals, florals, earth and spices. Match with slow cooked game meat over 10-15 years."
Raymond Chan, 2015

"Dense but not a heavy wine, lithe rather than blockbuster although certainly not lacking power. Tightly packed flavours. including dark berry, Oriental spices, oak and a suggestion of floral characters are gradually displayed and will continue to be revealed as the wine ages. A truly classic 'Le Sol'."
Bob Campbell MW, 2015

"Perfumed but coiled tight. Peppery and boysenberried with sweet, jellied cherry giving it a bright, succulent appeal. Herb and spice notes make savouriness as much of its shtick as sweetness/fruitiness. Firm, gravelly, peppery tannin aplenty."
Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, 2015
"A flagship Kiwi red of real presence. A powerful, unevolved drop with its depth of fruit still emerging through big, layered, drying tannins."
Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age Epicure, 25th August 2015.
