Other Reviews…..
From a close-planted single vineyard in Seville, in the Upper Yarra. Fully destemmed with 10 months in oak (20% new). A light ruby red. With its aromas of red fruits, sweet spices and a hint of lavender and incense stick, there's a lot going on here. Fine, textured and mouth-filling, this has both good acidity and persistent, gently grippy tannins. Will be even better with another six months in bottle. Drink by 2025.
