750ml: Alc 13.5%: pH 3.7: TA 5.9 g/L: Dry
Attractively aromatic. Cherry and summer berry-fruits, fragrant herbal tea, cocoa and soft leathery notes. Earthy, mushroom notes evolve as the wine opens up. The palate is plush, brightly red-fruited with a spicy savouriness and supple structure of well-bound tannins. Low yields and an excellent season have imparted great density and depth of flavour giving the wine a youthful vigour. A refreshing plum-skin tanginess and chalky, mineral edge provide drive and balance the riper flavours.
