Tasting Notes

A very expressive, fragrant nose with hints of sweet tropical fruit and cassis. Lots to like here - it is very complex and has layer upon layer of sweet fruit, spice and chewy tannins. This will definitely need time but on today's showing, it should turn out to be a truly brilliant wine. Leaves you somewhat speechless for the 30+ second finish.

Score: 18Farr Vintners, Farr Tasting, October 2019

Meaty and gamey nose – smoke and ash. Such wonderful texture on the palate, very firm tannins at the moment. There is incredible acidity here, effortless – all backed up by wonderful fruit character. 2022-2035
