Once the sulfur blows off this is a lovely wine to smell rich with iron, flowers, and wild berry notes that turn towards lingonberry. Complicating scents of smoke, spice and earth fill out the subtle, layered nose and are quite seductive. In the mouth the wine remians quite tight with a very focused, slightly hard core of minerality and drying tannins keeping much under wraps. The finish is very iron rich but stuccato and short with faint echoes of fruit and spice. leave this alone for 5-6 years

The 1996 is a light wine, offering a lemony, citrusy, and white fruit-scented nose with notes of minerals and spice. Medium-bodied, with good acidity, lively fruit, some sweetness, and a youthful finish, this wine should be at its finest between 2003-2015.


Winemaker's Notes:

Straw gold in colour and a seductive nose of rich honeyed fruit with hints of apricots and barley sugar. Still amazingly fresh on the palate with ripe fruit characters and good acidity. A complex wine with excellent length and weight.
