The process of drying grapes brings richness and flavour concentration with 50% of the grapes for this wine dried in the Appassimento method. In this Cab blend, you can definitely perceive this fantastic effect, which brings a very unique perspective from a colder vintage like 2019. A very seductive nose with aromas of spiced plum compote, sweet pipe tobacco, red licorice, and a hint of Christmas cake. Dry and smooth mouthfeel with flavours of sweet black cherry, blueberry compote, red pepper jelly, cedar, dark cocoa, dark fruitcake, caramel, with an almost savoury meaty element inside a medium length and superb complexity. The finish is spicy - very spicy -finishing your experience with clove, nut meg, black pepper, chilli pepper and cinnamon. This acidity level supports the sweet flavours of this wine and keeps all components in a well balanced execution. Purely seductive and delicious! (CWC, 15/06/23).
