Wine review: It is extraordinary that this wine is singing pitch perfect so early in its life. Profound,complex, intensely flavoured but also seemingly lean and keen, this is a piercingly clean wine with luxurious touches which infiltrate every nerve ending. The application of oak is done with the same reverence in which court dressers would clothe the naked Cleopatra until she stood dripping in finery, every inch the Queen of the world, but still a young woman underneath the couture. Attaining this degree of perfection takes precision, application, skill and unlimited patience. Beginning is not the beginning any more. It is the culmination of thousands of hours of painstaking sacrifice and the results are astounding.

Wine review: Fabulous lemon peel and cereal character with a long, malty sort of note on the finish. Glossy and stylish with excellent persistence and incredibly intense core fruit. So much so that the oak is barely perceptible, in fact! Reveals more detail with every sip - a wine of contemplation. Excellent.
