    Malakoff Estate vineyard, 16 months’ maturation in French oak, 12 months in bottle before release. Attractive rose petal, Turkish delight, black cherry, leafy aromas. Brambly spice, chewy fruit on the palate, but time in oak is also apparent, delivering a varnish character which together with savoury tannins completes a pretty complex nebbiolo picture. Give it time in the cellar.

    Light ruby-red colour with a nice tinge of purple in the rim, and a youthfully reserved bouquet that whispers rather than shouts, of dried herbs, red cherries and sweet raspberry. The tannins are fine and gentle without losing their essential grip. The wine is medium-bodied at most and easy to enjoy young, especially if served with protein. Quite lovely, like a pinot with tannin.
