“The aroma intensity of this vintage is extremely powerful. Pungent blackcurrant, black cherry, sweet vanilla laden oak, with supportive savoury background notes of aniseed, liquorice, cloves and dried spices.
The palate is intense, yet well balanced. Dominated by black fruit, which is accompanied by a bold acidity, helping temper the sweetness nicely. A subtle vanillin thread runs throughout from the explosive initial attack all the way to the lingering finish. Grippy tannins, but not overbearing, nothing a little bottle ageing won’t remedy.
A big, bold, bone dry wine with a huge character and wonderful structure. Also a very diverse food wine.
