Fermented with the stems, this fascinating, single-vineyard bottling offers an enticing fragrance of rose, dried cherry, leather and an intense balsamic note. The delicious palate weaves together sweet Morello cherry, wild strawberry, eucalyptus, white pepper, cinnamon and a blast of orange zest alongside firm, polished tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink 2018–2048.
