Tasting Notes

Deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is nutty and oak-influenced, with suggestions of almond meal and freshly-shelled walnut. There are some bunchy vegetal notes. It's a little closed and needs time to emerge. It’s full-bodied and dense, high-extract, loaded with tannin and lush in spicy flavour. The fruit is lavish as are the tannins. A wholly impressive pinot, which will surely soar in a high trajectory over the next few years. The density, concentration and fleshy extract are mightily impressive, as is the prodigious length.
