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.
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.
