The nose is strikingly perfumed with the emphasis on red fruit, opening up with cherry,
raspberry and a violet lift. Savoury forest and earthy elements combine with a certain saltiness
from the Southern Ocean. The background expression of subtle vanillin from selected Tronçais
French oak barrels integrates well with the bright fruit flavours
Medium bodied in the mouth, finely balanced with a persistence of flavour, showing the
elegance of this cooler vineyard site. This wine’s classic velvety, soft tannins are supple and
silky, providing a linear transition from the front to the back of the palate, finishing with a
salivating acidity. This vintage with more fruit from the vineyard’s older block is showing a
more structural mouthfeel and weight, with an abundance of red fruit from the younger block
carrying through on to the palate.
