Details


"The nose is deep and compelling; black, brooding, with hints of sweet, ripe, cherry- to-plum fruit, then sweet leather " old leather, with a lick of boot polish that smells both intriguing and inviting. Then come notes of cracked black pepper and dried thyme, with just a touch of star anise. The palate is supple, earthen, rich and round with a fine dry spice " layers of black cherries, with an overlay of wild herbs giving a spicy lift to the wine. Mouth-filling, vibrant, spicy and alive, yet still long, dry, and savoury. A complex wine that lifts the bar another notch in the Genesis story. Spicy, juicy, savoury and yet complex, perhaps the most lush and approachable of all Genesis wines to date."
