Tasting notes


Great combination of herbs, mint and redcurrant bouquet. Powerful on the palate, complex blackberry characters, well structured and very clean on the finish. Ideal with grilled red meat. Drink 2006-09.


Smoky, unripe grapefruit, fresh. A lovely effort, has layers of fresh, crisp fruit, superbly balanced, long in flavour, fabulous. Drink 2008-14.
