The nose is strikingly perfumed with ripe mulberries, blackberries and redcurrants lifted by a hint of both star anise and sage. The background expression of mocha and vanillin from selected Tronais French Oak barrels integrates well with the opulent fruit flavours. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, with a significant density of flavour. The tannins are fine, providing a silky, linear transition from the front to the back of the palate. The sweetness of fruit and the suppleness of the tannins are integrated with the blackcurrant, mulberry and redcurrant fruit flavours. Finely balanced, complete and with great charm; the wines retro-nasal persistence and length of flavour are stupendous. A perfect match with grass-fed steak fillet cooled to perfection with roasted root vegetables.
