Tasting Notes

It isn’t that we would look down our nose at anyone who disliked this wine. Oh, no. It’s worse than that. We would question their right to a continued supply of oxygen. This is a wine that encapsulates everything we love about red wine and it does it almost without trying. There’s an insouciance to it, which indicates a winemaker who is completely comfortable in his skin. You can taste the’ less-is-more’ approach in the wine’s subtly complex aromas and flavours, which are bravely carried along by the wine’s naturally high acidity, creating an impression of silky energy, similar to a Pinot Noir. Made from the region’s signature grape variety, Baga, its 50 year-old vines give great depth to the flavours, displaying red flowers, sweet tobacco, Victorian botanicals, orange peel, blackcurrants, spice-soaked cherries and baked plums. Silky, sinuous and incredibly seductive. 13 % alc. Drink now-2022


Press Note:

Decanter Magazine: "Delightfully fresh and perfumed with crunchy Pinot-esque summer fruits, a hint of chocolate and fine but firm tannins. Drink 2014-2020" 91 points
