95/100 – Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak

“30% new oak. I was bowled over by the aromatics of this wine: pure and floral with hints of cream and spice. Old world in style, and elegant and refined, and just so smoothly structured. Supple with a fine green hint and well integrated oak.” – Jamie Goode

“Such purity in the fruit allowed for a long cold soak to extract the beautiful flavours. I then let the must naturally progress to a long wild yeast fermentation and extended skin maceration. After gentle pressing, the young wine was transferred into partly new French Barriques where it underwent the second natural malolactic fermentation and matured on its fine lees for a long 30 months. Aged in the bottle at perfect condition for further 5 years. No fining. No filtration.” – Hans Herzog

Tasting Notes: Classic aromas of black cherries, black currants, elderberries, liquorice and dark chocolate show in this stunningly rich, multi-dimensional Bordeaux blend. Impressively pure with sweet, well-integrated vibrant tannins and a refreshing acidity for superb precision and opulence. Juicy on the palate with a huge long finish. Another benchmark of Hans’ wines to last forever.
