Sadly disappointing, ripe fruit but dull and uninspiring on the palate. Perhaps a dud cork?

It's fair to say I underestimated this wine, despite the relatively steep price tag, opening it on a nondescript Wednesday evening. Darker in colour than the typical Otago, on the nose it gives up ripe red and black fruit, lots of sweetness and a lovely subtle hint of oak and some salinity/minerality in keeping with the region - one of those wines you could sniff away at all night. The palate is poised and mid weight with silky tannins and lashings of complex fruit flavours - rhubarb, black cherry, moving into more earthy and mushroomy notes. Long finish that is both intense and fresh at the same time. Very impressed with the integrated and harmonious character of this wine
