Fun Vino, better second day, primary juby fruit developed, would love to see this with a few more months in old oak to develop it pre-bottling. Some serious effort has gone into texture. Great balance, lacking the mid-palate & finish it needs to take it to the next level #FilthyGoodVino c$35 @BocaccioVino

Intense floral and pink peppercorn aromatics. So fresh and lively and a delight to drink. #newaustralia

Have liked many previous vintages of this including the 2004 which proved it could be cellared 10+ years. This was restrained to the point of lacking fruit definition. Reasonable meaty peppery spicy nose. Have had better examples.

On the nose, cherries, spices and a bit of meatiness. Medium bodied and on the first day, prevalent acidity. On the second day, much more rounded with a nice savoury aftertaste.
