Deep almost opaque purple colour. Clear, bright and inviting. Clean nose with strong berried character and a good combination of vanilla and banana. Good complexity from the spice and ripe fruit. Full bodied and serious wine. Very good vibrant primary flavours. The spice berries and banana follow well from the nose to the palate. Fine tightly knit structure, powerful and yet elegant, long lingering finish.

Ageing Potential

Drink now for the vibrant primary flavours but the wine will repay you handsomely for 4 – 5 years of cellaring.
