93/100 – Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
“Focused, vibrant and juicy with nice freshness. Vivid raspberry fruit with some grippy tannins. Has nice acid and structure with crunchy fruit. Delicious.” – Jamie Goode
Tasting Notes: A heady nose, displaying aromas of cedar, warm spices, black cherries and red plums. The savoury overtones and great tannin structure offer a fantastic “juicy” mouthfeel. Seductive and elegant this is a wine which drinks wonderfully now and will age gracefully for a long time to come. After long, wild yeast fermentation to enhance the dark colour and intense flavours, the wine was transferred and subsequently aged for 30 months in partly new French oak barrels, on its fine lees. Bottled without fining or filtration to retain the beautiful aromas and flavours.
