Tasting Notes

A very complex wine with refreshing forest fruit and exotic spice notes on the nose. Succulent, wild cherry and juicy strawberry fruit flavours are balanced by a fine mineral quality and delicate tannins. Drink this magnificent wine from release and over the next few years.

Reviews & Scores

A wonderful red with a soft texture and lovely ripe fruit. Hints of dried strawberries and mushrooms with a little smoked oak. Full and round. Try in 2015 when the tannins will be softer.

On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...
