Deeply satisfying nose of polished oak, blackberries, cedar, and hints of wet earth. Dry medium bodied wine with freshly picked blackberries supported by dusty earth, violets and dried flowers. Dry powdery, yet firm tannins support the long finish.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
