Description

Wood toast and reduction dominate the nose today. By contrast, there is good freshness and verve to the beautifully delineated, punchy, bold flavours that display taut muscularity before concluding in a slightly dry, austere, lightly stony finish. My predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the dryness will age out as the supporting tannins seem ripe.

Drink from 2022 onward
