Matured for 8 months on lees in seasoned French oak. Dark red in colour with black shaded edges and a vibrant light red hue. Fragrant scents of red raspberry, red liquorice and red plum infused with fresh herbs captivate the olfactory senses. Some subtle earth and pepper notes are also evident. Juicy red raspberry, ripe cherry and red liquorice fruits are delivered with terrific intensity over a back drop of fresh herbs and peppered earth characteristics. Bright supple feel with polished tannins. Loaded with succulent red fruits it concludes long and fresh.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
From the Bracken Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, now owned by Jericho, off 1955-planted dry-grown vines on Maslin sands. This does bright, modern grenache well, with a tilt towards fresh fruit, but no dip into confection. It’s still a juicy affair, leaning into berry Danish, liqueur cherry and raspberry. Light grapey tannins pull the finish together neatly in what is best a drink soon-ish proposition to fully appreciate its fruitful charms. Drink by 2027.
