An outstanding wine with loads of body weight and flavour. The wine has been partially fermented in old oak. Bright straw colour. Lifted nose of spice and honeysuckle, followed by a hint of lychee and musk, which given time will gain considerable complexity. The palate flavours are mouthfilling but there is a touch of coarseness on the back palate. There is a hint of orange over a layer of honeysuckle, spice and musk. A big palate, with excellent length and persistence. Clean acid finish, followed by a very long spicy aftertaste.
