The powerful 2017 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard red, hand-harvested in the Cromwell Basin and matured in French oak barriques (38 per cent new). Deep ruby, with a fragrant, very ripe bouquet, it is highly concentrated, with dense, youthful plum and spice flavours, a hint of liquorice, and fine, supple tannins. Blossoming with age, it should be a 10-year wine.
