Delicate, fragrant, light to medium bodied but with deceptive power, firm tannins, and medium-term ageing potential.

The 2018 vintage has a concentrated core of red berry fruits including raspberries and cherries.  It is vibrant and more opulent than other years.

This is all of delicate, fragrant, fruit-driven and complex. It is pretty and upfront but it holds its top gear back for the finish.  Spices aplenty, florals, rhubarb, garden herb, wood sap.  Everything presents immaculately.

Enjoy in a large red wine glass, with some charcuterie.  Ideal temperature is 16-18°C.

Cellar up to 2023.
