Pepper, spice and all things nice, that’s what this reserve is made of. Plus loads of fruit and floral notes, naturally.
The 2014 Estate Reserve was sorted by hand, lightly crushed, fermented in stainless steel and matured in 300-liter French oak barrels. The outgoing, lively nose features plenty of red berry fruit mixed with mint and crushed violet. The palate is well balanced with fine-grained tannins; the mainly red fruit is pure and nicely integrated with the oak. It gradually builds in the mouth toward a saline finish and a slightly fishy aftertaste. This needs two or three years in bottle, but it should turn into a very fine Estate Reserve.
