This wine has a complex nose of mint, blackcurrant and chocolate and the palate is juicy and ripe. There is a good layer of toasty oak in the background to complement the black cherry and cassis fruit flavours and grippy mid-palate tannin. Very long, clean and elegant on the finish.

    Better than Bordeaux!

    Posted by Paul Simmons on 10 Dec 2020

    I was recommended this as a good value Bordeaux alternative. It was stunningly good and for me stands up to Bordeaux at double the price. Not over the top like some new world equivalents, but fine and elegant. Will definitely be buying more!



Winemaking

Harvest was carried out by hand.The bunches were de-stalked and the berries hand sorted before crushing and fermenting in stainless steel tanks. Pump overs were performed for 6 days before a further maceration of 5 days. After pressing, the wine was then racked to 50% new French oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation and 20 months ageing.
