Good Wine Guide 2011 Merlot of the Year

Another merlot that speaks first of its oak – quite cedary and gently smoky – then mulberry, dried plums and spice. The palate’s laid out on sweetly ripe tannins, delivering plum flavour that holds reliably through the finish. A class act, with plenty more to come.

94 points. Two glasses.
