An attractive aroma displaying both fruit and complexity from bottle age which combined is quite seductive. The aromatics are blueberry, plum, rhubarb and truffle with notes of stewed fruit, charcuterie and white pepper.
A medium to full bodied wine with elegance, intensity and complexity. The palate has an abundance of flavour and displays raspberry, beetroot, cherry and dark fruits with hints of earth, new leather, dark chocolate and rosemary. The palate has great persistence and finishes with silky soft tannin.
A slightly warmer than usual vintage with a very dry spring and harvest starting a week early.
12 months in one to three year old French oak barriques.
Deep red with brick red hue.
