"The wine sees 100% new French oak. The pressings are not included in this wine, hence softness, or so the idea goes. It works.
Wow, this is definitively plush. A doona of wine. Soft and supple, stains the palate well, has plenty of concentration, plummy fruit, boysenberry, sweet-clove-cinnamon spice, salted liquorice, white pepper, but the texture is where it’s at. Flavours are generous, but not over the top, so too the oak, the whole thing is harmonious in its own unique way. Lavish, decadent but not overly rich, palate staining, but gently, cool acidity lapping at your chops with each sip." - Mike Bennie, Wine Front
