Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The Spring before the 2016 vintage in the Hills was warm and dry, but December was distinctly hot. As the grapes were early in their development, still green and hard, the heat had little impact. From late January the temperatures were mild with cooler nights, just occasional heat spikes and enough rainfall to keep the vines happy.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Mid-deep red with a touch of purple

Nose
Red and dark plum, with a little black pepper and a touch of vanilla from oak.

Structure / Palate
Medium body. Supple balance, with red fruit flavours and hints of cedar from bottle-age. Fine tannins with a light grip.

The hot, dry summer has given this wine good concentration, while development is beginning to add a nice touch of complexity. It has the potential to gain more complex flavours into 2022. The wine is ideally suited to red meats, barbecued dishes and many pasta sauces.
