Other Reviews....
The brightness and clarity of fruit is something else with hibiscus, ripe strawberries, raspberries, and slate follow through to a full body, with a tight and structured intensity at the finish. Solid tannins give it a tightness at the end. Needs four or five years to open.

Crushed berry, Ceylon tea leaves and white pepper make for a brooding and alluring nose. The palate takes up this aromatic theme, enabled by a very fine, clear streak of bright acidity. A frame of graceful, firm tannin lends structure to this elegant wine. Really poised, long and aromatic. Matured in just 25% of new French oak for 16 months. Drink 2024 - 2040.

The legendary Block 5 wine, ey?
It’s powerful and graceful, full of presence and yet all the elements find parity. Dark cherry scents, clove woody nuance, dark chocolate, pipe tobacco and white pepper to sniff on. The flavours set to more dark cherry, dark chocolate but with game meat, mocha and cumin piquancy to taste. Oak is a large factor, but well integrated, the texture chewy with dusty tannin, concentration impressive yet the wine fresh. Very good in its way.
