A rather decadent and crowd-pleasing effort this year from this bastion of value. From vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels and the Bridge Pa Triangle, the endless summer allowed the vineyard team to pick at optimal ripeness with fresh acidities still maintained.
A beautifully fragrant nose of cedar, violets, chocolate, plum, currants and leather.
A palate that recalls red currants, liquorice and opulent Chinese plum sauce, with five-spice nuances.
With its soft plush tannins and spice, this will be a good match for Chinese style food.
