Platter * * * * – Tomato & bramble notes mingle with toasty vanilla oak & cigarbox on 2012 cab franc-led Bordeaux blend. Supple tannins & structure, medium body with grip for food. No 2011.
Dark chocolate and red cherries with liquorice entice on the nose and subtle nuances of leather and fynbos add complexity. An elegant mouth-feel displaying ripe red cherries and earthy fynbos flavours on the palate. The tannins are finely structured with a slight grip which smooths out on the finish.
