(2009 Vintage) Blessed by the superb 2009 harvest, this wine has a dark, dense colour. Intense, complex bouquet that confirms its ageing in quality oak: powerful aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with a depth of toasted notes that blend with very fine oak. Pleasantly full on tasting with concentrated flavours. Clearly a wine of character and structure but with a nice, fleshy texture. Classy and elegant with good potential for ageing.
Best wine I've ever had. Super subtle Pinot like but a lot going on and fantastic.
slightly lacks a kick v mild and light
Expected more, just ok for me
very smooth, full body
