    16 years old and still so young and fresh
    The Nose showing nothing
    (Makes you wonder what all the talk is about)

    The wine is a little hard at first no great flavour not much on the nose
    (Drying the mouth; with hard tannins)

    DECANT and let breath 24 hours at least.
    You know you are about to drink something exciting when the perfume of wood and old world wine fills the nostrils

    Bright fruit is wafting up from the glass, but like nothing you would smell in an Australian wine, it tingles the senses with brambles and sour cherry fruit

    A beautiful tang of grape stem and a soft almost bitter finish
    Filling the mouth with the combination of warm wood, bright, dry, ripe berries / not sweet fruit

    Finishing with a persistent peacock tail of warm alcohol & fruit on the back plate
    that will not stop

    PS. No need for food now it would just spoil the experience
