Judges Tasting Notes

Deep rich red, small garnet rim. There is an abundance of riches, with glorious black cherry, sugarplums, sandlewood, bitter chocolate, rosemary and mint, smoke, savoury/earthy/mineral characters. The palate shows amazing complexity, as for nose, superbly integrated textures and flavours, fabulous cashmere oak tannins with fresh acidity darting through. Wonderful lingering length. Beautiful wine and fantastic sensitive winemaking.
