Intense dark, crimson red colour. Choc-nut spice on the nose with ripe, seductive tannins, licorice and Bourneville dark chocolate. Ripe mulberries and a rich, velvety mouth feel with a moorish Nutella finish. Maturation: 12 months in 50% New wood, 25 % 2nd fill and 25 % 3rd fill. (100% French oak ). 2 rackings during wood maturation. Thereafter bottled without filtering or fining. Natural deposits may therefore be found in the bottle. Can be enjoyed now but is anticipated to reach its optimum in 2 - 5 years.
