Judges Tasting Notes

This all starts with ripe dark fruit, chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon, and a touch of cooling eucalyptus and cedarwood on the nose. The fruit and oak are in great balance, with layers of flavours and a nice creamy, fine-grain texture. It is a rich, juicy and balanced example – a fantastically well-made wine, with long ageing potential.
