Thanks to Gary Walsh at The Wine Front for this review…

So purple. Boysenberry, plenty of spice, new leather, aromatic with dried flowers and scrub herbs.

Medium to full-bodied, quite the ‘mineral’ feel to it, deep and rumbling, but fresh too, with a bitter orange peel and meaty flavours mingling with vibrant purple fruit.

Tannin is ripe, with fine chalky powdery grip, and a zesty savoury finish of excellent length. Black tea too, maybe.

Very young, but already extremely good.

A superb release.
