Leaps out of the glass with beautiful aromas of violets, plums, cherries, and perfectly ripe blackberries all vying for attention. If velvet were a smell this would be it. Ditto on the palate. It has the perfect gentle grip - more of a light purchase that slowly melts away. Whilst it lingers, it is as if the wines lifetime flashes before its eyes in reverse and slowly gets undressed, leaving you with the primitive flavours of its humble beginnings - juice, skins, winery and terroir. – Charles Oliver, Winemaker.
