Deep dark red core with black shaded edges and a dark red hue. Intense red to dark raspberry, black cherry and red liquorice aromas infused with crushed rock sail out of the glass trailed by subtle dried herb and peppered earth notes. Refined and polished the mid weighted palate is layered with rich red to dark raspberry, red liquorice and cherry fruits. Energetic acidity with infusions of crushed rocks and peppered herbs lying underneath. Well integrated yet muscular tannin structure with a long powerful yet elegant finish.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
From the 1.7ha Block 31, the highest section of the 1946 bush vines. 50% whole berries, wild yeast open-fermented; matured in a foudre and ceramic eggs for 11 months. Truly great wines add something new on each taste; here, there's an ethereal, otherworldly purity to the lingering finish and aftertaste. Drink to 2050.

James Halliday – The Weekend Australian

This has such precision with aromas of blackberries, cloves, raspberries, black tea, rooibos, dried rosemary and iron shavings. Dark and mineral with a medium body and a firm, very fine and tight tannin frame. Fantastic tension and freshness. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better from 2024. Screw cap.
