(2016) Only native yeasts. Nice medium colour and density, a creamy nose, with subtle smokiness and chestnut character, and a meatiness to this, lighter floral nuances too are quite complex. Quite truffly, but good red fruit too. The palate has a subtle red and black fruit dryness, with a juicy personality, really quite dry, both the acidity and the silky tannins, that chestnut dryness.
(2015) Plenty of creamy oak and ripeness, but some floral and aromatic character with the palate boasting loads of fat lemony fruit that is racy with a glittering acid quality. Could well be Elgin, and a wine with lovely fruit, apple acidity and cool qualities, even orangey in the finish. Delightful.Tasted blind.
