Pretty intense, exotic, fragrant and immensely floral with aromas of exotic spice, a whisper of pineapple, a maceration of white fleshed fruit and concentration to the point of complexity. On the palate - lush and exotic with density and richness, but only enough to drag you in and take another sip, the salad of flavours are tempered by the acidity and texture from the tannins and their phenolic influences; a little rose -like tone at the finish; lengthy, completely enjoyable and delicious! 93 Points
The attractive 2016 vintage (4*) was fermented in a mix of tanks (90 per cent) and barrels (10 per cent). Mouthfilling, it has good concentration of ripe tropical-fruit flavours, with a touch of toasty oak adding complexity and a crisp, dryish (5 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2017+.
