“Gorgeously fruited and elegantly expressed, the bouquet shows dark plum, spiced cherry, thyme, toasted nut and olive characters. The palate displays lovely weight and rounded mouthfeel, together with fine texture and supple tannins, finishing long and soothing. At its best: now to 2023” Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020
“A complex bouquet loaded with aromas of dried thyme and red cherry; schist, crushed stones and raspberry; toasty vanilla scented oak and French barrel. On the palate – delicious; savoury, fruity, focused and textured. Flavours of fruits reflect the nose, firm youthful tannins and medium+ acidity accentuate the savoury, mineral aspects – all leading to a complex and lengthy finish. Very youthful still with plenty of tension and nervousness. Decant for service or better still – wait till 2022 then enjoy through till 2028” Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, May 2020
Vibrant red fruits, elegant tannins, pairs well with duck, lamb and other red meats.
