Winery Tasting Notes
Black core with red/brick red rim.
Elegant red and black fruits coupled with fine spice, floral and cedary oak. This wine is from a near perfect vintage and is quite closed, but will really open up in the next few months.
The palate is tight and full of restraint. The red fruits build slowly, creating a wonderful juicy richness through the palate, yet is extremely focused at the same time, supported by well handled oak. The flavours are long and juicy, balanced by firm but fine tannins and vibrant acid.
This wine is from probably our best vintage to date and will need a few months to settle down, but will age over the medium to long term and will drink well for at least the next decade if cellared well.
Serve at room temperature to accompany lamb cutlets with grilled red onion and eggplant served on tabbouli.
Carefully cellared, this wine should last 10+ years
