Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) The 2008 Melbury flows across the palate with layers of dark sensual fruit spices licorice leather and tobacco. Clean veins of minerality frame the fruit beautifully through to the finish. Floral notes add an element of brightness on the close.

    Saturated medium ruby. Superripe aromas of currant, minerals and exotic herbs, with suggestions of date and iodine. Sappy and superconcentrated, with lush but delineated flavors of black raspberry, bitter cherry and tobacco. Mounts slowly and impressively on the back half, with the wine's extremely fine tannins buried in fruit.
