18.5 Points – Jancis Robinson

Bright garnet. Pale rim. Broad and rich with a minty note. More mainstream than many in terms of its build and flavours. Still evolving but beautifully balanced. Lots of energy and transparency. No heaviness at all. Rich but lifted. Already gorgeous but there are tannins behind the exotic fruit and brilliant freshness. Still quite youthful.

Taste & Aroma

Score:18

‘An exceptional year’, with a dry winter, fresh spring, good flowering. Mild summer with a cloudy July and August, and a hot, sunny September.

For full-bodied to powerful wines, which are expressive but also show minerality and smooth character. Accentuates complexity and finesse.

Ideal for: All types of Wine. Great as a small Red Wine Glass or an all round White Wine Glass. Adequate for Rosé too. Especially good for: Chardonnay, Chianti, Riesling and ‘Smaragd’ – wines from the Wachau.
