"Deep crimson, the bouquet opens with a flash of red and dark fruits, asian spice and a fragrant floral lift. The palate is finely structured, with the finest of tannins running with a line of cherry, wild strawberry and a host of darker fruits. Super silky and exceptionally balanced at this young age we expect the best from this wine in 6-8 years, but it will carry for many years after that." - Yabby Lake
95% MV6, 5% D4V2 clone, hand-picked, an average of 20% whole bunches (separate batches 0-30%), wild-fermented, 8-15 days on skins, matured for 11 months in French oak (20% new). Supple and smooth; red fruits in the ascendant on the expressive bouquet and palate. Gentle spices will grow over time, adding another dimension to an already compelling wine. 95 points. Drink to 2028. James' Halliday's The Wine Companion
