This wine has a deep, dark core with garnet rim. On the nose, aromas of whole black peppercorn, blackcurrant and subtle black cherry are delicately intwined with a faint, smokey wisp, star anise and cloves.
These aromas are complemented by a savoury, mouth filing palate with distinct pepper spiciness and soft, integrated tannins. Well judged acidity focuses these flavours as they resonate in the aftertaste.
A truly great wine from maturing vineyards, this wine will age gracefully for 20 years from vintage.
