The powerful 2019 vintage (5*) was late-harvested, barrel-fermented and made in a basically dry style. Bright, light yellow/green, it is a very distinctive, sturdy, fleshy wine, with deep stone-fruit flavours, a rich, oily texture, moderate acidity and a long, slightly spicy finish. Drinking well now, it's also a strong candidate for cellaring.
