Critical response 

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) scored the wine 97-points (as she had done when at The Wine Advocate), calling it a, ‘highly commendable achievement in a challenging vintage!’ and that it, ‘should be drinking beautifully pretty much from the get-go, offering a good 25+ years of cellaring potential’. 

Antonio Galloni (Vinous) scored it 97-points as well. He said that due to the challenges of the vintage, ‘winemaker David Cilli gave the 2017 32 months in cask, a bit longer than usual, to help all the elements come together, a choice that has paid off handsomely’. 

Meanwhile, Jane Anson scored the wine 98-points, and commented: ‘A muscular, powerful wine, even at five years old this is still in its primary fruit phase. Give it a good few hours to unwind in a carafe if drinking soon.’ 

Fair value analysis 

The new release is 18.0% more expensive than the 2016 was on release. That particular vintage has 100-points from The Wine Advocate and is currently available for £8,640 per dozen. 

The 98-point 2015 and 99-point 2014 and 2013 all offer good value among back vintages as well, especially the latter which has a Market Price of £7,000 – 26.1% less than the price of the new release.
