Offering fine value, the elegant 2020 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested from hillside sites in the Southern Valleys and matured for a year in French oak barrels. Deeply coloured, it is full-bodied, with strong, fresh, cherryish, plummy flavours, finely integrated oak, and a rich, smooth finish. Still youthful, it should be at its best 2023+.
