Tasting Note

The first in a line of early 20th century battleships bestowed with the motto “fear god and dreadnought” and embodying a supreme combination of speed and power, Dreadnought denotes our steepest and most breathtaking hillside Syrah vineyards.

An abundance of sweet fruit, black pepper and savoury gamey notes which are typical of the style. The palate is elegant with supple fruit, vibrant acidity and a large presence of fi ne grained tannins emulating the structure of classical Northern Rhone.

In the cellar bunches were sorted and de-stemmed and then treated in our typical manner; no crushing, no yeast or additions and an extended time in vat. Upon pressing, the wines stayed in barrel for a natural malolactic in the spring before bottling prior to vintage.


  • Taking Gold for its spicy, savoury character, this Kiwi Syrah had ‘bacon and black pepper notes, with grippy, ripe tannins’, began JKS Restaurants’ Sunaina Sethi, while team leader Olivier Marie described it as ‘a complex wine, with cured meat and an animalic, tertiary note, like leather’. Andre Luis Martins of the Cavalry & Guards Club also noted ‘sweet cassis with vanilla and smoked aromas, elegant with gentle, fresh mineral style on the finish’, while team leader Annette Scarfe MW highlighted its ‘lovely aromatic, concentrated fruit’.

  • From 76 hillside blocks. Black pepper and blueberry, great vigour and firm finish (the 2008 in my cellar is superb) – a great wine. Drink 2017-2025. 95/100.
