94 Points, Outstanding and Special Value, James Halliday Wine Companion, 2015
Best Sparkling Wine, SA Wine Awards '08 and '11. The reasons are obvious: the base wine was well under 13% alcohol and had not been aged in new or near-new American oak, thus the dosage needed when the wine was disgorged was not high because the phenolics were low; the restaurant finished wine is elegant and fresh.

The iconic Aussie style of sparkling red is beautifully displayed in this spicy, plum and pepper sparkler. With no grip or tannin to distract you, this is a wine that should be drunk ice cold, with the greatest of barbecues and your best of mates. Matthew Jukes, UK Wine writer 2008
