Background
We chose to hold this wine back in our cellar for some extra maturation time. We are thrilled with the composition of the 4 varieties and it makes for a special back vintage release. Reviews: 91pts The Wine Front, July 2019 "Well developed. Dusty, leathery, rose and licorice flavours with infusions of bay leaf and vanilla cream. Soft and supple but firm with tannin. Well balanced in general. Feels quite advanced; it's ready to drink now". 92pts Huon Hooke, July 2019 "Medium red/brick-red colour showing development, not unexpected in a wine of its age, with a cigar tobacco, coffee/mocha and toasty developed bouquet. Some violet notes and a hint of cigarbox. The palate is elegant, medium to full-bodied with slightly elevated acidity. A rather edgy, almost Italianate wine that begs for food. Indeed, it's a very good food wine and an unusual but meritorious style for the region."
