Time of release
A classic with deep red colour to the meniscus. Chocolate, mocha, sweet red berries and spice aromas follow on to the palate. Fabulous balance of flavour intensity, natural acidity and supple, weighty tannins. High cellaring potential. 15.0% alc/vol.

Medium deep purple crimson. Fresh red cherry, roasted walnut, smoky aromas. Well concentrated sweet-fruited wine with red cherry, smoky, vanilla, graphite flavours and gritty, slightly leafy tannins. Finishes muscular and long. Still in it's elemental phase. 2018 - 2025 91 points

Medium deep colour. Fragrant dark berry, dried roses/ pot pourri, praline, roasted chestnut notes and gun flint bang. Complex and expressive wine with plentiful dark berry, dark chocolate, flinty/ earthy, dried herb flavours, fine sinuous but chalky tannins and fresh vanilla oak notes. Finishes bitter firm with flinty mineral length. Idiosyncratic wine with strong voice of place. 15% Alc 94 points Now- 2038
