Sourced from estate vineyards, this is aged in a mix of new and neutral French oak. Baking spices, gingerbread, cassis, earth, umami, soy and balsamic elements combine in a complex, distinctive and powerful wine with another decade of development ahead. Decant if drinking soon, or cellar until 2025.
