    Wax capped bottles, and you’d expect that the D’Anna brothers are experts when it comes to waxing. Anyway, I hate DIAM corks, more in a wine writer capacity as much as anything, because so often you can’t get the cork back into the bottle.
    So fine and pretty. All strawberries and dried flower perfume, a dash of sweet spice, subtle stony earthiness too. Light bodied, fresh and delicate, red cherry and ripe strawberry, fine emery tannin, maybe some fragrant basil, and a gentle but insistent drag of fine dusty tannin on a long cool finish. What a lovely wine this is. Should blossom with a few more years in bottle too. Drink 2022 - 2029+
