Tasting Notes

And in the glass, that text book, vibrant black-purple with neon rims. Savoury scents of earth, charry meat, dark berry fruit and undergrowth. Something guttural and primal here – and to taste, more rugged than The Relic 2012, yet still fresh and vital, and a silkiness to fruit, but with a chew and sandiness to tannin that lends more structure and tension to the wine. Flavours are long, the wine expands then contracts across the palate, finishing again savoury, earthy and dusty. Epic wine. To savour. Mike Bennie - Winefront
