Bright crimson red.
An intense primary nose of raspberries, red plums and dark cherries whilst allspice notes provide further ambience. Behind the fruit/spice character lie deeper savoury characters in the form of leather and meat stock.
Like the nose, fleshy plum spearheads ahead of the dark cherry & red berry burst. With good palate weight, mouth filling dark chocolate/mocha tannins gives initially firm but ultimately velvety support and focus from start to finish. The acid thread provides good persistence and lasting presence.
A wine currently in its infancy, this wine will have something to offer at all stages of its expectedly long life. For early drinking, decanting is strongly recommended to access the nuances and deep varietal character. In terms of longevity we expect this to be drinking well until 2024, perhaps longer… we’ll keep you posted!
