Still very youthful, the 2017 vintage (5*) is 'a selection of our finest barrels'. Hand-picked and matured in French oak barriques, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby, it is mouthfilling and highly concentrated, with dense, vibrant berry and spice flavours, and a firmly structured finish. Best drinking 2023+.
