This vintage has now sold out

The wine is elegant and balanced with excellent depth and complexity and a very long finish. Plums, black cherries, sichuan pepper, olive tapenade and bay leaf blend well with a real savoury character. There is a tension and focus from the acidity being just right and a structure that shows firm, ripe tannins.

Tasting notes

The wine has been purposefully released 3 years after vintage to allow complexity and depth to develop with age. The wine is elegant and balanced with excellent depth and complexity and a very long finish. Plums, black cherries, sichuan pepper, olive tapenade and bay leaf blend well with a real savoury character. There is a tension and focus from the acidity being just right and a structure that shows firm, ripe tannins.
