To celebrate the ongoing success of the CInque blend we have released a special six pack with two bottles each of the 2016, 2014, 2011 vintages - all gold and silver medal winners.
Cinque is a wonderful blend made from five different varieties – Graciano, Tempranillo, Tinta Cão, Touriga Nacional and Sousão. Each of these varieties – which make excellent single varietal wines – come together beautifully. It's like that magical thing which happens when a group of old friends get together and bring out the best in each other – except in a bottle.
2016 Cinque - 94 points Huon Hook
"Deep, bright, red/purple colour, youthful and clear, while the bouquet is somewhat shy and closed. There are subtle undergrowth and earth nuances, savoury and not fruity, while the palate is full-bodied and firm with abundant drying tannins and rich but savoury flavour that lasts. Charming Campari and berry aromas emerge with extended airing. Terrific length. This has a lot of potential and seems to need more time."

The 2014 Cinque is our highest scoring wine to date with 96 points from Huon Hooke...
“(Graciano Tinta Cão Touriga Nacional Souzão Tempranillo) Brilliant, deep, glowing red/purple colour. The bouquet is superb, showing fully ripe, complex dark fruit aromas, with a subtle underlining of good oak. It's similar in the mouth: full-bodied and tidy, with firm but balanced tannins and youthful vigour, while it's already drinking superbly. Long, satisfying finish; extra good concentration. An excellent red wine in every respect.”

2011 Cinque - 94 points James Halliday
"A full-on Iberian Peninsula blend of tempranillo, touriga nacional, graciano, tinta cao and souzao, The colour is good, the bouquet and palate with a mosaic of red and black fruits delicately stitched together by fine/savoury tannins."
