Instant seduction of violet, blackberry, cherry, cocoa, spice and fruitcake perfume. Black Forest gateau in one whiff. Those same ripe and rich flavours are found in the mouth which is soft, rounded, plush and embracing – but with a dry tail. Supple, textured and elegant it offers up concentration, structure as well as a velvety appeal. Layered, nuanced, cohesive and rewarding.
The nose is bold and uncompromising in its intensity with nettles and grapefruit zest most prominent. The palate boasts a thrilling tension and vivacity. Taut, tangy lemon-lime and grapefruit twist. It’s light, crisp, and soft in a powerful yet lean way. Vivid acidity but beautifully balanced by the fruit flavours and lees. Lovely and crisp in its freshness with ample lip-smacking verve and zip. A deceptively light but powerful wine with a lingering tail. It will age well too.
Complex aromas of waxy lemon with a creamy nutty edge and subtle hint of dusty gravel track. The palate is bright, taut, lively, fresh and crisp. There is the anticipated lemon wax breadth which fleshes out the mid-palate but the zippy and vital acidity which retains focus and keeps everything poised. The finish is long with a gentle creaminess. Lovely concentration, focus and cohesion. A wine which will drink well now but also reward cellaring.
Inky intrigue to a somewhat subdued nose of shy black plum and spice – with a hint of fynbos in the backdrop. Plush entry to the mouth, rounded and appealing with ample juicy black plum notes. Those rich flavours are tempered by a pleasant spicy cedar grip. Structured, textured, but still taut and leashed, the wine is like the 2019, still somewhat tightly furled. It finishes with good length and an intriguing saline element.
