More information on wine critics and ratings

Sangreal is the most seamless and perfumed of the three single vineyard pinots; seductive, seamlessly balanced and moreish.

Once again in 2012 the alluring characters of this site combined with red fruits, whole bunch pressing, acidity and oak have produced a beautifully interwoven expression of site and vintage.

As Nick says, "That‘s what it‘s all about for a near-perfect vintage."

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2018)
Boasting knockout aromas of herbal, floral, tea-like stems, sous bois, smoked meat and black cherries, the 2018 Sangreal Pinot Noir is a treat just to smell. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and silky textured, smooth and polished in feel, showing ample concentration and length on the finish, which adds hints of orange zest, cranberries and exotic spice. Complex, mouthwatering and elegant, it's a beauty to drink now and over the next 7-8 years.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2016)
Exotic and complex layers of fragrant violets and red flowers, as well as sappy, savory and woody spices and red-cherry pastry notes. This is complex as always. The palate is expansive and intense with assertive tannins and silky fruit flavors. A terrific, focused and powerful finish. Best from 2022.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 97 Points (2014)
Clones 114 and 115 planted '94, believed to have mutated into a single 'Sangreal' clone. Always made with 50-70% whole bunches, and 60-70% new oak maturation for 18 months. Typical bright, deep hue; the bouquet exudes flowers (roses, violets), spices and a throbbing heartbeat of gently savoury dark fruits; the palate magically twists all these characters into a single silver-coated stream of red and blue fruits, the tannins no more than background haze, oak a slender frame. A gorgeous pinot of the highest category.
