Midnight black in colour with a deep bright dark purple hue. Intense dark plum, liquorice and blackberry aromas sail through the nostrils with hints of ripe blueberry, vanillin cedar, light earth and spice ensuing. Rich yet elegant and silky in its feel, delicious spicy plum, liquorice and ripe blueberry fruits show plenty of freshness as they’re layered across the mid weighted palate. Vanillin cedar and subtle pepper elements lie underneath. Bright youthful finish with seamlessly integrated tannins showing great polish and finesse. Savoury medium to long conclusion.
Cellar 6-8 years.

Other Reviews…..
From six estate blocks, 50% on sand, 50% ironstone. Destemmed and mechanically sorted whole berries and 20% whole bunches open-fermented with a splash of viognier, 10 months in French oak (20% new). Dark fruits with earth, chocolate and licorice nuances. Sensational price. Drink 2038.
