Drinking well now, but still unfolding, the 2018 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard red, hand-harvested from 19-year-old vines at Gibbston and matured for a year in French oak casks (34 per cent new). Ruby hued, it is floral and supple, in an intensely varietal style with generous, cherryish, slightly nutty flavours, a hint of herbs, fresh acidity, and excellent complexity and harmony.
