TASTING NOTE: It is elegantly fruited and beautifully lifted on the nose showing spiced cherry, strawberry, mixed spice and toasted nut characters. The palate is juicy and wonderfully rounded, delivering succulent fruit flavours together with subtle savoury nuances backed by fine texture and polished tannins, finishing long and smooth. At its best: now to 2022. Score - 90 (Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz, June 2019) Price $ 24.95
