Estate sourced fruit on a south facing slope with the addition of some Pyrenees grapes. Light aromas of redcurrants and floral rose petal on the nose. Comes more to life on the palate with raspberry, redcurrants, cedar oak and a hint meaty. Savoury, well balanced acidity. The finish is suitably Nebbiolo with sticky fine grain tannins. 45 days on skins and 2 years in bottle before release makes this a wine to enjoy now or age for up to 5 years

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.
