Description

I can’t put this down. What’s going on? So much. It’s really light in flavour, all just ripe berry fruits and pleasing sour cherry, but the tannin cuddle is something else, a web of Italianate succulence and immediately mouth-watering character, rippling long and to infinity. There’s distinct alpine herb and genepy notes in this wine, pretty and appealing too. That being said, an ashy, smoky-minerally note finds its way in there too. It’s other-wordly wine. Almost ungainly. Decrepit and kind of shrill. But it all works. Made on a cold, dusty planet somewhere else. I love it. You should too. 95 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
