The bold, youthful 2019 vintage (4*) was grown in the Southern Valleys and matured in French oak puncheons (24 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is freshly scented and vibrantly fruity, with generous, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with oak, and supple tannins. Best drinking 2022+.
