Fantastic complexity and vitality with layers of dark fruits enhanced by gorgeous leafy notes.
Elegant and fruit driven, silky palate delivering dark fruit notes and some chocolate bitterness. There is a lovely touch of spice melting into the fruit. A wine to watch as it unfolds and to be enjoyed over the next decades.
The vintage had average yields and the rain that fell in January 80mm, and then February 15mm, and March 10 mm, had no effect at all on the fruit quality. The resultant wines have a wonderful aromatic quality and elegance, particularly in Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
Great vintage for Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and in the reds Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Aged for 14 months in barriques of which 67% were new.
Deep crimson hue with magenta edges.
