Plum and mulberry, with dusty purple flowers, black currant with hints of rustic savoury tar, earth, fallen eucalypt and olive. There’s some chary cedary oak with a hint of meatiness. Slick with mixed berry coulis over bitter cooking choc and a creamy mid palate. The tannins are square, slightly chewy and plonk themselves down steadily before drawing tight. Leaves a waxy lip smacking feeling and a meaty savoury edge with leafy edge.
