Sealed in red wax and with quality cork – a mid-density purple with vivid magenta at the edges. Intensely fragrant – boysenberry, cassis, redcurrant, plum, graphite and rosehip alongside a floral lilac note. A youthful confidence and freshness. Subtly seductive and intricate – elegant. Balanced acidity gives great flow. Precise, sleek, layered, with a delicate tread through the palate. Tannins are supple, ripe, with a whole-bunch influenced cinnamon, anise and sumac spiciness. The fruit is ripe, plush and lasting, supported by some subtle savoury notes of olive, oyster shell, light soy and white pepper. Dry on the finish, long and poised. 94pts.
