19pts/20 (96/100pts)
Grown at 650 metres above sea level in the Tullum Valley you can feel the cool mountain air in this wine. The fruit is powerful but very pure, blueberry compote merging into vanilla bean. The oak is strong, but the fruit handles it perfectly. This is amazingly fresh on the palate, which boasts soft tannins and a fantastically long, balanced finish.
