Ben Edwards, James Halliday Wine Companion, reviews Haskell IV 2007

 

It seems to be a rarity to see the new guard of South African wines on our shores, but it is happening with increasing frequency; this wine stays away from old fashioned faults and delivers a wine that is true to its Bordeaux varieties, but also its origins; black olive, cedar, and a fragrant overlay of cassis on the bouquet; the plate is super fine and fresh, with focused fruit, silky tannins and a very long and quite pure finish. Price may be a sticking point, but given its pedigree and class, it shouldn’t be. 95 points, drink till 2030
