The 2008 vintage will be remembered for the difficulties in establishing a tonnage for the year. What resulted was low tonnage but good quality.
Clean bright deep red with purple rim at bottling.
Complex dark cherry and plum aromas with hints of earthy warmth. Secondary characters will come with time to the youthful nose. Nuances of oak vanillins will show when the wine is warm.
A fine balance of fruit and oak tannins finish the abundant depth of fruit flavour. Time alone will allow this wine to reach its full potential.
5 to 8 years cool cellaring will make this a truly elegant wine.
Best presented at 13 to 16C.
