 "A brilliant magenta, this verges on opaque; shimmering in the glass. Violet and boysenberry set the senses alight. A lick of bay leaf brings a more savoury tone. The thing with this estate, however; the factor that marks the entire range more than any other; is the impeccable tannin management from the grape skins, pulpy and tongue-staining black, tactile and palpably juicy across the wine; to the oak, nestled as a classy echoing support amidst the cacophonous fruit and herbal follow through."


James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2017


"The single block cab mal from YY. It sits at 80% cabernet, and the mesh of both sits in barrel for 18 months before hitting its glass home. Highly perfumed showing cassis, black olive, brambles, a waft of mahogany/cedar and faint white pepper. Very regal scents. Shapely in the palate, asserts a sense of precision but also a succulence. There’s depth in flavour, darker fruits, touches of herbs, lick of salt bush. Starts subtle and builds royally into full, chewy ribbons of tannin. Feels a little more approachable than expected, and perhaps its cellar life a little shorter, but delicious here, and that sense of intellect is in tow."

 "75% Cabernet, 25% Malbec. Agincourt Cabernet consistently exhibits classic cabernet characters of cassis and dark berry fruits, along with a unique leafy herbaceousness. The Malbec plays its part with inky robust plum and black cherry and ample tannins to provide beautifully balanced structure."
