Nose of, blackberries, dark cherries, pouched strawberries. touch of black licorice, dust of crushed rocks and decayed red floral bouquet. Fruits are darker, richer, fuller, more extracted than the previous ones from Central Otago. Fruits on the palate match the nose with more tannins structure, medium spice, nice dark floats, a little leather, slight touch of dry stems and high acid fruit driven finish.

My favourite Dry River to date, pretty florals, dense red and blue berries, fruit appears cleaner and fresher than usual.

Dark, concentrated color. Aromas of blackcurrants, dough and yeast. Powerful wine showing a plethora of dark fruits on the palate, including black amaretto cherries, blueberry jam and blackberries. Very dense. A tricling of CO2 first apparent of the back palate, whoever this dissapered over time.
Not super varietal and not super NZ in style, however a good wine.
