(2019) A very warm vintage, This was bottled 2012 and released in 2018. Dark, almost coffee-coloured wine, with lots of briar and leafy damp forest floor, a touch of clove and medicinal character. The palate surprises with its initial fruit sweetness, the tang is almost sherbetty, in a fascinating wine, cocoa and coffee moving into that pin-sharp, salty finish. Is it a touch too saline and dry? Maybe for some, but I found this fascinating and compelling.
