A ripe style, delivering macerated plum, cherry, mineral and tea aromas and flavors allied to a steely structure, this is linear in profile, with vibrant acidity and a lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit.

The berry and tar character is already coming through clearly here. It shows readiness and focus. Full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and attractive orange-peel and spice notes, turning to flowers. Chewy, yet polished and pretty. This comes from the young vineyards on the estate.
