A hugely compelling wine. Deeply refined single estate expression showing bounds of character, finesse, length, breadth and structure - it really does have it all! The plan is obviously coming together as this vintage is the most successful expression their originally planned vineyard blend and is a testament to biodynamic viticulture. A classically styled wine with notes of cassis and cedar. The seamless, elegant palate is encased by fine tannins. It is a wine whose flavours become more complex if the wine is allowed to aerate for a while and that will also increase in complexity with age.
A truly electric and oh so lovely wine! Ground marble and fresh limes in a caipirinha kind of way. A taut mineral structure with very lean, clean and crisp finish. Bright, brittle and brilliant. Your taste buds will start vibrating around your mouth as soon as the first drop hits your tongue. It`s as nervous as an electric eel on its first day at school when it finds out he hasn`t got any pants on! Drinking this wine is like being defibrillated by lightning on a lime-soaked marble slab. This vintage carries a little more flesh on the bones than the previous but is otherwise our skeletal friend.
eally well defined old vine fruit grips you by the chops with its gentle hands. The first then second sip release a staccato flurry of words through your head… blossoms... red flowers… fresh... bright... tight... clean... natural acidity… complex.. Almost a grapefruity tightness to this style of wine that opens up, rounds out and grows. The lovely clipped structure needs time or breathe or blood and flesh to hang onto… it’s a zombie wine that wants to dig its claws into something! Serious old vine vineyard from a classic Clare area. Almost challengingly restrained for the impatient.
