Tasting Note:

Rich but gently extracted ripe, dark fruit with autumnal smoky notes, coal dust and spice. Through the middle of the palate there is a bright touch, a hint of red cherry piercing through the shade, before reverting to a more indulgent finish of sun-warmed fruits steeped in spices and liqueur. Open and engaging fruit with a solid tannic foundation. As ever a minimum of 90% whole bunch fermentation was used to keep the wine as fresh as possible. A blend of top-quality vineyards across the estate including Tupin and Viaillere, all fermented with whole bunches and aged in large demi-muid casks, a maximum of 10% of which are new.
