Cellaring:

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Drinking window now to 2032.

Nose:

Sub-region instantly ID’d - voluminous blue fruits and giveaway juniper. More than just ‘earthy’ – freshly tilled earth, coal/tar dust, gritty. Elemental. Tasting at this stage of bottle maturation – an ever so subtle hint of pâté topped with fortified gelatine. Well, maybe not so subtle! Oak? Pleasing not to have to blind pick its age or derivation!

Palate:

Crunchy riberry, deemed a native superfood and often eaten raw – reportedly possessing ‘a refreshing spicy flavour, with a hint of clove and cinnamon’. More familial, more primary – blueberry, glazed black plum and fig. Pronounced and omnipresent oak – still sensitively evoking a (teacake sponge) sweetness. A crisp and clean finish ensues, with a yoghurt “bite” (acidity) completing the package … oh, and were satin tannins mentioned?
