Swirling and warming with the hands brings out dark red fruit with a hint of musk. This is quite silky, mineral too. There’s a lovely line of flavour that goes right through the core and out the other side in the finish – no chocolate here.
From 50 year old vines. Deep cherry-red, perhaps a little purple at the rim. An open and forward nose of minty, earthy, brambly blackcurrant fruit that falls into a creamy and eventually a redder depth. Ripe, a little lush, lightly grained tannin and excellently balancing acidity. The fruit flavour is very tasty in the mid-palate. Decent length. No tightening here I think – delicious right now.
