"This has astonishingly vibrant, soaring aromas of ripe damsons, exotic spices, tropical lilies and sandalwood. In the mouth it has a beautiful, rich, succulent, mouth-filling yet silky texture. There is quite a lot of tannin, but it shows marvellous polish. Intense and concentrated yet fabulously balanced and with amazing length, this is great now and will only get better. Stupendous! Drink 2019-2035. — Tom King, Fine Wine Manager "

Winemaking

The grapes were sourced from 25 year old vines grown on terraced vineyards of schist soils, facing south and east. When ripe, the grapes were picked and taken to the winery in 25 kg plastic boxes, where they are rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes were first foot trodden in a traditional stone tank (“lagar”) and after this they were transferred into an open stainless steel tank where the cap was pressed down with robotic pistons. Fermentation took place for 10 days under strict controlled temperature environment. Once the fermentation was completed, the grapes were gently pressed using hydraulic presses. The wine was then aged for 16 months in 225 litres French oak barrels.
