Well worth cellaring, the 2016 vintage (4*) is a blend of Merlot (54 per cent) and Malbec (46 per cent), matured in French oak casks. Full-coloured, it is fresh and vibrant, with strong, ripe plum and spice flavours, finely balanced tannins, and savoury notes adding complexity. Best drinking 2021+.
