Each varietal is vinified separately, with 18 months' independent, second-use, American oak ageing, before a further six months in bottle. The wine displays a vibrant, thoroughly fresh nose of ripe red fruits (cherries) alongside hints of warm patisserie and a subtle touch of anise due to the perfectly-judged oak. The wine is lively yet silky on the palate with sublime tannins from beginning to end, and a rich texture. A stunning finish hints at coconut, creamy toffee and vanilla pod, complementing the generous weight of fruit.
