Decanter Platinum At Decanter World Wine Awards
The All Time Great 2016 Vintage!
“Well judged, polished oak compliments the fruit on the
nose. Shows good complexity on the palate with red and black fruits,
minerality, spices and florality.” Decanter
and ripe - lots of plums, vanilla and milk choc. Forest floor and herbal
undergrowth are hidden softly underneath - sage and oregano, tobacco leaf.
Spice ekes in around my edges. I’m packed with broad, silky tannin riding on a
backbone of bright acidity. I have loads of structure, but I’m still friendly.
This is just really good. A deep purple fruit palate
mixed with wonderful tannins. It should just get better and better as it lays
down for a few years. By no means am I saying to wait. I think this is a wine
that you should try every year to enjoy its evolution. Well done. 94pts CT
