    Fascinating aromas of smoke, savoury herbs, tobacco and red cherry/berry fruit float easily from the glass. It envelops the palate with ripe red fruit—cherry, plum and strawberry galore—all nicely balanced with tangy passionfruit and mixed spice. This is medium-plus bodied with creamy-smooth mouthfeel and is balanced on a pin. There is full fruit flavour with an underpinning of soft, ripe tannin and lengthy, delicious finish and aftertaste. Drink now and over the next 7-8 years.

    Aromas of fresh red cherry and plum, a touch of baking spice and stony soils, roses and toasty barrel scents. Dry, fruity, varietal and packed with flavours that the bouquet suggested. Fine fruit and mild wood tannins, Medium+ acidity. Youthful, fresh, balanced and well made. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2022.
