Built for the long-term | 95 points | Angus Hughson – Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Blend 2020

Deep crimson in colour followed by a compact and concentrated unashamedly claret stye with structure, fruit focus and longevity keys to its success. Robust blackberry, blackcurrant fruits to start well supported by spicy oak, then building with mulberry and graphite nuances. The palate is then dry, firm, bright and concentrated retaining youthful vitality with ironstone laced berry fruits supported by a rich bed of grainy tannins, with dried herbs to finish. A muscular, strong armed vintage with dense fruit and structure, built for the long-term.
