Description

Deeply alluring nose with plum, blueberry, cocoa powder and a dusting of dried herbs. The palate is rich with the same plush, ripe fruit flavours as well as that earthy, chocolate nuance. It’s layered and structured with the oak supporting rather than dominating the tiers of fruit. Lovely equilibrium of succulence and acidity with gentle tannin grip. Admirable restraint on display on this long lived, rewarding wine which will age with distinction. Good expression of Merlot from a great vintage.
