Robusto

Straw colour with a hint of old gold. Quince and grapefruit bouquet, with fresh fruit salad and pineapple on the nose and it follows through on the palate. Good crisp acidity balances the sweet fruit flavours. A taut yet big wine with structure, texture and length will reward aging. Drinking exceptionally well now and will gain in intricacy over the next four years.

Very strong taste of straw initially that was off putting. It did finish smooth but the initial taste was hard to move past.

Oaky and leather, pineapple on the nose as well as mineral.  Complex tastes of tropical fruit, something floral, tobacco, oak, minera, toasted coconut and on the finish there is a slight asparagus flavour all rolled up into a wonderful tasting wine.  Perfectly balanced acidity with a great finish.  This is a stand alone or paired with dinner.  We enjoyed it with grilled salmon skewers with garlic Dijon sauce and spring vegetable lasagna and it was wonderful and held up against all the strong flavours.
