Tasting Notes

AROMA: If you know Dreadnought then this is a pretty classic edition, gifte in the savoury elements with blue and black fruits, crushed flowers graphite, a touch of liquorice and an earthy smoky lift. PALATE: The palate is very classical with medium weight. Some sweet fruit will be evident in its youth but there is a long lean frame underneath. The tannins are influenced by stem inclusion which gives a fresh sappy introduction to the more robust seed and oak tannin.

Winemakers Note

Vintage 2019 was exceptional with a perfect fruit set in the Spring followed by a hot settled summer and practically no rain during the harvest months.
