FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Scallops and black pudding with beetroot, apple salad and a sweet raspberry dressing.
The nose was highly aromatic a few months ago but has recently become more restrained. In the mouth the wine has incredible concentration and soft, fine tannins that are relatively unpronounced. The wine has a remarkable freshness with perfectly ripe fruit flavours. Excellent length with a magnificent spicy finish and velvety texture.
