A subtle, soft and round, good aging wine, where the farm's typical earthiness with other soft savoury notes follow through on the nose and reflect the wine's unique terroir. Dark forest fruit with a hint of spiciness, achieved through a subtle, crafted blend of oak and tannins. The third harvest off these young vineyards show stunning potential with good structure and age potential.
Good age potential.
