$60.95 inc. GST
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.
Subdued aromatics, this is attractive with raspberry flavours rippling through it and an appealing density, more old school and restrained than some, with classic balance. As it opens up, floral raspberry leaf appears in the best way, juicy and unfussy with crushed herbs and baked earth. Enjoyable, definitely not trying too hard and succeeding to charm. Certified biodynamic, Alain Moueix. A yield of 40hl/ha. 93/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
Drinking window: 2025 - 2038.
