Made 'On The Quiet', the powerful 2020 vintage (5*) was grown in the Wrekin Vineyard, in the Southern Valleys. Deep ruby, it is mouthfilling and youthful, with bold, rich, berryish, spicy flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and a fairly firm finish. Full of cellaring potential, it should break into full stride from 2024+.
