“The Laird has arisen to towering new heights under Hongell and Blieschke. Powerful, voluminous, dense. Exotic like none before it. The colour is astonishingly deep and impenetrable, and yet still vibrant at a full five years of age. ⁠
A veritable Moroccan souk of intoxicating aromas that step up to even higher intensity on the palate. Black fruits of all sorts, dark chocolate, orange cream, liquorice and coal. It completely transcends its season. Oak has been perfectly played to its proportions, amplifying fine-grained tannins that effortlessly carry its considerable volume long and strong. Best yet? Hands down.”⁠
98 Points – Tyson Stelzer – The Barossa Mag
“The palate is soft and already showing some attractive mellowness, while the palate is profound and fleshy, dense and high extract, the quality of the tannins is superbly smooth and equable.  A massive, powerful wine of great persistence and amazing balance in spite of its proportions.  An elephant in a tutu.”
98 Points – Huon Hooke – The Real Review
