(2018) From a coastal vineyard at elevation, planted in 2000. Another 'crafted' wine according to Andy, that includes the addition of 7 or 8% Viognier, harvested at the same time as the Syrah by which time is very ripe (six weeks after Viognier is picked for white wine) and aged in a combination of 500-litre barrels with 25% in amphorae. Tight and glossy blue black fruit, a little balsamic quality, Very ripe, aromatic and cassis-dense again, with some meatiness backing up, and a touch of cedary quality. Juicy but firm and structured onto a dense, fleshy palate, touches of clove and liquorice, then all drawn together by creamy slick tannins and plenty of acid backbone.
