    September 1, 2017 - Plums and cocoa the initial impression. Then blueberries and blackberries. White pepper, some toasty oak, liquorice, aniseed, spice. Appealing viscosity. Medium bodied, grippy tannin, fresh acidity. Ripeness, balance and length all excellent. All that sounds a bit clinical... most importantly, really enjoyed drinking this!

    June 29, 2017 - A beautifully balanced wine.
    A nose of yeast,oak,slight cassis, and something which first reminded me of a chlorinated swimming pool but now shows itself as a somewhat steely , wet iron smell . Ahhh......yes there is that white pepper starting to push through, very fine ,but its there.
    On the tongue.
    Light tannins, very fine,slightly acid, and a sour cherry finish which lingers.
    A very elegant wine indeed and just as good if not better than the Unicus which is nearly twice the price and a little heavier in body.
    I found this wine to be medium weight and colour.

    Sourced from 3 vineyards and three families..............familia

    October 2019

    Oak /varnish/ alcohol on the nose
    slight acid
    medium tannin
