Still so young, this is a dense, hugely concentrated black-colored wine, dark with tannins and rich with powerful black plum and damson fruits. Powered and very ageworthy, it will be best drunk from 2020. The wine takes its name from the Zero Longitude Greenwich meridian that passes through the vineyard.
