The nose screams Vosne, with its aromas of Asian spices, roses, raspberries and ripe cherries, cool minerality and a hint of red earth; the palate is slender and cool, but it has a nice stuffing of playful fruit and it is elegant and fresh, silky and with firm but paper-fine and beautifully integrated tannins; still a bit tight on the finish, but floral and fragrant and with very good length. Drink now - 2030.

N.V. Sami-Odi Shiraz Little Wine #8 Australia, South Australia, Barossa
93 points
An unvintaged ‘assemblage’ composed of casks from 2018 (48%), 2017 (29%), 2016 (12%), 2015 (9%) & 2012 (2%), bottled 28 September 2018. Exclusively sourced from the Hoffmann’s ‘Dallwitz’ vineyard from vines planted in 1996, 1995, 1960 & the oldest vines planted prior to 1912, 6415 bottles produced. Remarkably linear and pure style, very much Northern Rhône, cool and fresh but without the wildness of the granite minerality, energetic but polished, civilised and gentle, elegant tannins, roses and warm spices, violets, excellent persistence, eucalyptus finish.
