A Best Buy
Elena Brooks, founder & winemaker; Anthony John Parkinson, vign. TASTING NOTE: It's wonderfully ripe and fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, sweet plum, warm spice, cedar and subtle chocolate aromas, followed by a concentrated palate offering excellent substance and persistency. Plump, flavoursome and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2031. Score - 94 (Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz, March 2022) Price $ 19.95
