$50.00 (15 years ago)

Clear, bright colour no sign of age

Nose: Restrained earthy fruit

Palate: Creamy finish on back

24 Hours later

Very tight wine well put together.

Vibrant fruit now showing through, still quite young and fresh finishing with a creamy texture and pleasing fruit acid.

The wine is 16 years old and shows no great sign of age.

I would liked to have given the wine a further 24 hours to open up even more and see what it had to show, but I drank it all.
