Barrel sample. Described by Jane Anson as one of the 20 best wines of 2018. “I don’t think she’s right but it’s very nice to hear,” Sisseck murmurs. The first sniff of the glass transports you. It’s fresh, intense, concentrated, a sense of controlled power, damson and sloe, blackberry still on the vine, mighty tannins though velvety and the whole concerto finished off with the most lovely wash of juice. This is a very smart wine, made by a craftsman working at the peak of his powers. ¡Olé!
