The elegant 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard red, matured for 10 months in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with generous, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. Already delicious, it's an ageworthy wine, likely to be at its best 2023+.
