This wine is made from wonderfully ripe Merlot from our older vines planted in three separate blocks and picked in perfect early morning conditions over 8 days in late September. The colour is a deep dense velvety black with a vibrant and hugely appealing structure of fine rich, ripe fruits with hints of black cherry and cassis enhanced by dark fruited fragrances and a touch of sweet spice. Elegance and finesse further supports a register of lush fresh berries and brambly like flavours, coffee beans, mocha and soft grilled new oak notes.
On the palate it displays a luscious concentrated fine fruit attack with a succulent crunchy florality and waves of dark plums and chocolate that spreads with a generous exaggeration and impressive intensity across the mouth leading to a sleek graphite like finish. It is a deliciously confident and opulent wine of classic structure but with a touch of mystique that promises well for the future.
Overall, the vintage has produced a very fine and attractive wine that will continue to develop for many years to come and benefit hugely from careful cellaring.
