This young, coiled wine is sourced from the producer's estate vineyard, and from a site within it planted in 2002 entirely to the Swan clone, which lends it both power and complexity. A whiff of petrol blows off the nose before revealing dense waves of strawberry, raspberry and dried herb. On the finish is an unexpected taste of tobacco. Drink now through 2021.
