A wine that follows in the full bodied footsteps of the 2019 with cranberry, pomegranate and bruised strawberry on the nose as well as rose, rosemary and fynbos. The palate shows a darker edge, featuring olive tapenade and soy as well a hint of grilled m††eat. The tannins are supple but, with a stemmy, pine-needle grip that adds structure along with a fresh acid, this wine is accessible now and will improve through 2030.
Aromatics of red cherry, pomegranate and rhubarb lead to a full mid palate with notes of soy, dark chocolate and wild rosemary adding gravitas to the high toned fruit. Fresh, black tea-like tannins provide savoury grip and conspire with a saline edge for a textured and long finish.
The nose shows blueberry, orange rind and black forest cake as well as the exotic spiciness of nutmeg and sumac. The palate is complex and alluring, with cherry pith, dates and cloves beside a fennel and caraway seed texture in the fresh tannins.
This "Cuvée Cinéma" has a nose of candied cherry, sweet spices and rose alongside smokey and herbal notes and a slight saline edge. The palate is a touch richer than the previous vintage, with dark chocolate and aniseed adding a savoury counterpoint to the lifted, fresh red fruit. Grippy tannins and bright acidity hold everything in balance, giving a long finish.
