  • Although it is almost impossible to predict with 100-percent certainty the season, it is now apparent that this is a great one. Aromas of tobacco, plum, leather, dark spice and a touch of dried herbs lead the way. The full-bodied palate delivers dried black cherry, black raspberry and clove alongside polished tannins and fresh acidity. It’s a wine that will benefit from time in the cellar. Drink from 2018.
  • This is a pretty, elegant and refined wine from the south of the region that shows great balance and structure. It has a fresh, fresh character, the acids and the fruit that gives it a great potential. The acidity is evident in the freshness, bringing in a soft texture that will make it very approachable from 2016.
  • This is a very concentrated and concentrated wine, bold and opulent with layers of blackberry and plum fruit, sweet baking spice and a whole heap of fresh herbs. The fruit and acidity are all there, with a hint of wood. The tannins are intense and demanding, so drink from 2018.
  • The difference between this vintage and the previous two vintages is the concentration of black cherry and cassis. This is a fruity wine with a solid structure and a tough backbone that needs to age. It has power and acidity to go with the fresh fruit. Drink from 2018.
  • This rich and soft wine is smooth and generous. With ripe black-currant and black-plum fruits, the acidity is just right. It is ripe, full of fruit and ready to drink. It was made in 2014 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the producer. It’s a full-bodied wine that will be best from 2018.
  • This is a ripe, fruity wine with a smooth texture and a firm core of acidity. It has the black-currant fruits that are ripe and juicy. The dense structure of the wine is set against the fresh acidity to give a bright, lively aftertaste. Drink from 2018.
