Description

A major FWD Co. discovery that delivers excellence vintage after vintage. Perched up in a steeply sites and terraced suntrap amphitheatre behind Mission Estate, the wine is powerful and brooding in 2013, pouring a gorgeous deep purple in the glass with structure and concentration to burn. Definitely one for the cellar, this will be better after 2018.

Smells

Deep dark berries, meat and liquorice, with smoky notes, camphor and leather.

Tastes

Super structured and highly concentrated, the oak balance is perfect, giving a nutty character to the abundant dark fruit. Tironui is as impressive as it's ever been in 2013. Still youthful and brash, give it a good decant and enjoy with food if you're planning to drink before 2018.
