2013 saw warm and dry condiƟons throughout most of growing season, but without any significant periods of severe heat. Yields were low and many red varieƟes rip-
ened evenly, with great flavour depth and some firm prominent tannins which have soŌened well during maturaƟon. As a result, many of the wines from the year show
great structure and framing when young and look to have the ability to genuinely age
well too.

Colour: Deep ruby.

Bouquet: Intense lifted aromas of dark plums dominate and are supported by fresh
hints of fresh cherries and dark chocolate.

Palate: The flavours of plums and dark berry fruit evident on the nose are clearly also evident on the palate, but here they are balanced by a subtle fine tannin frame-
work around the edges which provides a clear path of travel to the wine. A hint of spice appears to provide some added interest as the soft dark fruit rolls through to
the finish.

Cellaring: Drink to 2023
