Still unfolding, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and matured for a year in French oak barrels (25 per cent new). Dark and fragrant, it is sturdy, with strong, vibrant blackcurrant, plum, spice and herb flavours, gently seasoned with oak, and ripe, supple tannins. A very harmonious red, it's already drinking well, but likely to be at its best 2024+. A good buy.
