    May 31, 2017 - Braeside vineyard Fleurieu Peninsula SA.
    Salomon also owns a vineyard in Austria and trips back and forth.
    Light pepper, slight oak,hint of yeast on the nose.
    On the tongue, slight tannin,slightly astringent/acid, medium fruit .
    Suggests it will last another 10 years ,but.
    The cork, I hate corks, and this showed me why.
    At this point there is a 20% show on the length of the cork and that 10 years may well be a bridge too far.
    i would suggest drinking in the next 5 years and just checking that show on the cork.
    I certainly will , and shall post an update in a month to let you know if it is holding .

    revisited 13th August 2018

    Cork about 20% show not bad considering
    I smelt a meaty smell on the nose that did not register previously
    Grip at the front slightly acidic
    Tannins soft
    Colour dark/medium bodied
    Drinking very well I give it another point to 94
