Tasting Notes

Very dark, brooding, almost black appearance. Richly concentrated layers of fruit, wood and tannins woven tightly together in seamless elegance. Gorgeously sensuous and massively structured with a chewy dark fruit core supported by stately tannins. Focused, almost endless finish. Well worth maturing if you can stand the temptation.

Ageing Potential

The fresh ripe vibrant fruit can be enjoyed now, but the ultimate expression of the wine will be realised in 3 – 5 years’ time.
