Still unfolding, the 2019 vintage was estate-grown at Earnscleugh (47 per cent), Bannockburn (37 per cent) and Gibbston (16 per cent). Ruby hued, it is vibrantly fruity, with strong cherry, plum and spice flavours, slightly nutty, savoury notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and supple tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
