Tim Atkin's Rating: 94 points
Platter's Rating: 4.5 stars
Classic, restrained and elegant with a mouth-filling fruit core, this wine is seamlessly poised with pronounced aromatics of fresh black plums, mulberries, violets and pencil shavings. The tannins are supple and well-structured. and it has fresh acidity to support an opulent mid palate.
The approach in the making of this wine is classic restraint based on the Bordeaux’s right bank blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc and is styled around the bright fruit paradigm where both varieties are grown in a cool climate.
The mineral and gravel-like tannin texture will soften over time. The primary flavours of black fruit and spice will become more savoury and 'gamey' as the wine matures. It is a wine that can develop nicely over the next 10 years under the right cellar conditions.
