What the Experts say: Intense, pure black fruits, leaves and spices leap from the glass with oak spice and tarry undertones. There are oak spice and plummy flavours on the palate and a floral element. Well-integrated acidity underpins the fruit purity and lengthy finish. Score – 95. (Decanter World Wine Awards, 2018)

What do I think: A meaty Melbec I say! A beautiful aroma hits you right between the eyes – that would be in the nose! Great taste, full bodied to a silky-smooth finish.
