This is a limited production wine—a selection of the winemakers. It is still very young, structured and rich. The tannins are firm and solid at this stage giving the basis for a ripe and fruity wine to develop. It's an impressive wine that can be drunk soon, although which will also age well. Drink from late 2016 and until 2024.
