Product Notes

Smooth, opulent and gamey with spice and brambly fruit through to a long and peppery finish.

Tasting Notes

The warm ripening conditions of the 2016 bring out the riper side of this grape variety. Savoury notes are supported by liquorice and black pepper, as well as ripe plums and a hint of smoke. The wine shows beautiful intensity on the palate. The natural acidity adds freshness to the wine, and tannins are soft and approachable.
