2017 was a cracking year in the Hunter Valley and you can see it in this wine. Just check out that amazing colour.
On the nose there are aromas of a creamy berry brulee, cranberries and fresh dark fruits. Second use oak shows through with some lovely toasty notes whilst there is just a background of wet river stone.
Medium bodied on the palate with lively and juicy fruits. It is absolutely mouth-watering. The tannins are there, but they are light and play a secondary role to all that fruit. Plenty of crunchy acidity on the finish that will pair well with oils & natural fats. Cellar in the medium term, 5-7 years.
You couldn’t do any better than char-grilled chorizo. Straight off the grill and into your mouth. Follow with a taste of Tempranillo. Olé!
