The fresh, youthful 2018 vintage (4*) was hand-picked and matured for over a year in French oak barriques (partly new). Full-coloured, with a peppery bouquet, it has strong, plummy, spicy, slightly nutty flavours, a hint of tamarillo, oak complexity, savoury notes, and good potential; best drinking 2022+.
