Vibrant sour red cherry, blood orange and purple plum aromas, campari-like,some rose-petal florals, herbal sage and thyme, and a potpourri of scented spice and earth.

The palate is medium-weight yet with concentrated, juicy flavours of sweet plum and savoury tomato. Exotic spice and delicate pepper, perfume, wet stone/earth and dried herb.

    I found the whole bunch component in the 2018 obfuscated varietal character, but no such problem with 2019. 25 dozen made.
    Light red colour. Strawberry, lightly poached rhubarb, spice, clay and green herb. Fine and aromatic. Light bodied, feathery and brisk, has crunch and energy, a little dustiness in texture, pulls tight and long on the finish. Delicious. Unforced and unafraid to be playful. 93 points
