Mature brick red with a bronze core; 30% opaque. Slightly oxidised nose with hints of rosemary oil and charcoal. Smooth on the palate, not thick texture but not thin either. Aromatic and fragrant with a lovely delicacy. Burnt sugar toffee apple on the late palate and a lovely acidity. A bit of a gap on the aftertaste and a warm red toffee apple finish. 88/100. 05-Dec-17. Decanted 2 hours.
