The very age-worthy, vividly varietal 2019 vintage (5*) was harvested from mature, 21-year-old vines in the Gimblett Gravels and matured in French oak barriques. It has deep, purple-flushed colour. Still very fresh and vibrant, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with excellent density of plum and black pepper flavours, seasoned with nutty oak, and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2024+.
