100% Coonawarra, 12 months in French hogsheads, 24% new, 33% one-year-old and 43% two-year-old. Magenta colour. The nose gives us a mix of blackfruits and ripe raspberries. Chocolate and mint. A midweight style. Slightly furry tannins. Really gets a bit exciting when we start to see some blueberries emerge towards the finish. Good acidity, decent length. Some spicy, nutty oak is on show at this early stage. An attractive style which should age well. With time in the glass, more and more generosity emerged, but the wine always retained a degree of elegance.
