Okay, now before you start thinking things sinister, I’m pretty sure The Murder is simply the collective for a group of crows and picks up on the fact that this vineyard is just 5km from the ocean – as the crow flies. It’s a biggie yet the fruit and tannin balance supplemented with some nice oak treatment keeps it all hanging together rather well. Thick, unctuous dark fruit characters of prune and plum with a little licorice edge. It is remarkably soft and supple. It’s a wine to get your teeth into with a decent piece of lamb I’m thinking.
