in the cellar : This wines youth and accessibility come through in a brilliant, deep ruby colour, introducing a style that is medium-bodied, with wooding in French oak for just five months. Yet the wine has a great strength of character: distinctive varietal roasted coffee beans, chocolate and rich, ripe fruit, with a hint of herbaceousness on the nose and palate. A firm entry, a slight sweetness on the middle palate and a classic dry finish. Bold, but accessible.
