Medium to full bodied with lifted aromatics of deep red berries, plums and spice. The oak is subtle and integrated, while the palate is juicy and fruit driven with great length of flavour. The wine is well balanced and shows the intensity of the fruit while retaining elegance and minerality. It will age gracefully for up to 10 years.
