“The lovely 2013 vintage was estate-grown, 400 metres above sea level, at Bendigo, in Central Otago. Hand-picked, it was fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 20 months in French oak barriques and puncheons (30 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep and bright in colour, it is finely scented and supple, with deep, ripe plum/spice flavours, hints of dried herbs and nuts, excellent complexity, and a long, tightly structured finish. Drink now or cellar. Certified organic.” – Michael Cooper
“Dark-red florals, delicate herbal layers and nuances of game add interest and detail. The wine flows with vitality and energy along a fine-featured line with fine-grained tannin extraction and lacy acidity … leads to a very long and sustained finish with floral and herbal elements.” – Raymond Chan
Tasting Note: This is quite a powerful wine, it has dark plums, boysenberry and spice aromas on the nose while the palate has a fine structure of chalky tannins, ripe concentrated fruit with linear movement. Layers of complexity evolve in the mouth and the wine tails off nicely with a long finish.
