Cooler than average spring temperatures led to a smaller set, however this resulted in excellent fruit concentration. A warm summer and long lingering autumn then followed, allowing this smaller crop to reach optimum ripeness.
It is deep ruby in colour. The nose is packed with vibrant red fruit suggesting strawberry, raspberry and pomegranate. Beneath this is a savoury underlay, evoking impressions of roast game, spicy pepper and black olive tapenade. The palate is mouth filling and rich, balanced with velvety tannins and a seam of refreshing acidity that helps draw out the wine’s lingering finish. While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years.
