Bright, floral and light spice notes with a hint of youthful reduction on the nose.The palate is full and richly fruited showing dark cherry and red plums. Notable structure is nicely imbedded from start to finish. There’s a generous, joyous character to the wine and a balance between grip, freshness and lush fruit. Clearly shows generous depth and fruit concentration at this stage in its evolution with a layer of minerality, licorice and cocoa complexity.A high percentage of whole bunch fermentation contributes definition and finesse.
