Deep crimson in colour with hints of purple at the rim.
Intense lifted aromas of ripe red berries play with notes of violet, pepper and dark chocolate.
Full bodied with complex forest fruits, plums, spice and velvety tannins leading to an elegant, long finish.
2020 was a warm vintage with low yields providing excellent fruit quality. The fruit was higher in sugar than previous years and had good concentration of varietal fruit characteristics, showing Strathbogiespice and perfume in the wine.
This wine was fermented using wild yeast, with its slightly unpredictable nature, this builds more complexity in the wine. Matured in various ways over 12 months, there are many components in the blend. Most parcels were matured in older oak using 150-year-old English oak casks, the rest were maintained as fresh fruity parcels in stainless steel.
