(2020) Lovely pale colour. Gentle earth, mushroom and spice and savoury umami character. A little bit of roasted/chestnut character. Â The palate has fine, dry cranberry fruit, but the savoury character continues, nice length and a subtle, understated style. Gibbston fruit.
(2020) Pale but quite a violet tinge to the colour. Vinous and smoky on the nose, vine fruits and a touch of red liquorice. The palate shows a solid, but supple, fresh style, taut and fairly noticeable acidity, the finish drying the mouth with tight tannins. It's slightly more solid style, done very nicely. Fruit from Alexandra. No UK retail stockist listed at time of review.
(2020) Coffeeish note to this, a very pale. Colour, with warming spices, clove and cinnamon, a depth of autumnal soft fruit. A bit of leafy decaying undergrowth - sweet, ripe, a touch of Demerara sugar, but finesse, good balance, and a long finish. Not the best of these vintages, but in a good drinking place. No retail listing in the UK, so price is for a more recent vintage.
