The youthful, complex 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard red, hand-picked and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (18 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, with a fragrant, savoury bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with generous cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely integated nutty oak and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
