Expert Reviews

40% matured for 28 months in new French oak and American oak, the remainder in older barriques. Deep crimson-purple; this is a rich and luscious wine, but keeps a sense of proportion and balance, with fruit and tannins simply acknowledging the oak. Will live for many decades.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

A blackhole is less dense than this wine. Deep purple and inky, it consumes all light coming near it.

The nose is intense, a punch to the olfactory, plums and berries, spices and chocolate. The oak plays its part but it is not over the top. The fruit still sings.

It doesn’t disappoint in the mouth, rich and powerful. More plums and dark berries. Chocolate, coffee and liquorice linger on a long, long length.. Good acidity and firm but fine tannins ensure great mouthfeel. Classic Vale.

Drink with a Peppered steak pie with peas and plenty of mash on a cold winter’s night.
