A great follow-up to the 2018, this has attractively ripe and fresh dark berries, as well as a dark
graphite-like note, some pepper and cocoa powder. The palate has a resolved and finely textured
quality. Quite fine-grained tannins here, very smoothly rendered and detailed. Drink or hold. Screw

This steps things up a bit. It’s the extra length that does it. It’s a ripe, semi-rustic turn at shiraz, with
bitumen and plum flavours doing most of the lifting, but the finish reaches so very far and beyond
that, by the end of it all, you’ve noticed the extra dimensions added by various florals and dry, rusty
spice notes. It’s a wine of layers and length. It’s top notch. Drink 2021 - 2030+.
