Description

The Cellar Selection range seems to outdo itself every year for value, just when you think you've tasted the best one yet, they go and release another cracking vintage, like the 2016. A beautifully floral style with notes of cracked pepper, liquorice and chocolate, it's silky, rich and a shockingly good buy at out special price.

Smells

A haunting and exotic bouquet showing cracked pepper, blackberry, liquorice, plums, wildflowers, leather, chocolate and espresso.

Tastes

Juicy, fleshy and full-flavoured, the 2016 release is incredibly concentrated and very refined; beautifully fruited but light on its feet in the best cool-climate tradition. A wine of great presence and gravitas with an incongruously affordable price tag, this wine has a smoky, meaty finish to it that cries out for some lamb and rosemary or some wild venison. Great young, this will cellar well through 2025.
