Made with fruit off vines planted in the late 1960s, this wine shows off the warm and dry 2018 vintage with its beautiful purity of luscious fruits. It’s quite a bold style for the Pyrenees – rich blackberry and blackcurrant fruits with cabernet’s herbal side dialled way back into a gentle dusting of dried oregano. There is also some well balanced vanilla bean from extended time in French Oak. That is all followed by a full-bodied and fleshy palate, more commonly seen in some very well regarded South Australian regions, with quite supple fruit tannins although the oak does provide some structure to a lingering finish. The trademark Taltarni reserve is still there so this wine will no doubt please fans of the style.
