Likely to be long-lived, the concentrated, very youthful 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown and hand-harvested at Bendigo, and matured in French oak barrels ((30 per cent new). Deep, bright ruby, it is a powerful wine, with bold cherry and plum flavours, finely integrated oak adding complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
