Our 8th vintage gave us wines of greater balance, the dry and hot vintage meant smaller berries that in turn led to more concentrated aromas and flavours. The vintage is marked by aromas of darker fruit such as, black currents and plums yet also red fruit such as strawberries and redcurrents with hints of dried herbs tickling the nose. The palate is complex, rich and balanced showing flavours of blackcurrents, mulberries, prunes, olives, hints of forest floor and a lovely earthy undertone. The tannins are round and soft yet firm giving the palate great length and structure. It will definitely benefit from aging in bottle or if to enjoy now, it will surely need decanting. To enjoy it fully we suggest a serving temperature of 16-18 ̊C. It can be enjoyed with a variety of foods; such as game meats, duck, mushroom dishes and charcuterie, olives and beetroot crisps.
