This may be my favourite Gippsland bottling of recent years. The wine has the fruit intensity of 2016 and 2013 but with the balance and finesse of 2010. It shows cherry, blackcurrant, damp red earth and wood spice on the nose. The palate has more black fruit as well as spice and some herbal undergrowth. It’s quite approachable now but will benefit from at least 5 years in the cellar.
