Such an over performer. Took 90 minutes and could've used more.

A classic, I have had this about 6 times now and love it every time! Classic Graves scorched earth and toasted coffee bean notes.

Ruby centre and a quite narrow rim just bordering on garnet. Large tears. Blackberry , blackcurrant, cocoa , coffee and spice . Very nice and inviting on the nose . In the mouth there is a round black fruit core , cocoa, tobacco and mineral notes . Large tannin , but fine and also ripe . Balancing acidity , long finish. Too young really though just about drinking, it is a user friendly wine , but will without a doubt improve over the long term .

Tannins are already falling off, this is a medium-bodied beauty I could drink all night.

Hey now! If you enjoy the complexity of skin exposure if your white wines, you're going to live this wine. Creamy on the finish.

Advanced aromatics and slightly aldehydic however the palate was nice with vibrant acidity and very youthful. Too young, needs time to allow the tannins and acid to mellow. Drink again in 2020.

So tasty. Lime, stone fruit, white chocolate, ginger ale, nuts, subdued creaminess.
