Hints of plum blossoms, allspice and cedar gently introduce bolder tones of black fruits and leather on the nose. The palate enters with subtle aromas of forest floor, brambles and vanilla pod, followed by a vibrant burst of freshly picked mulberries, roasted coffee beans and cherry skin. The finish is refined and focused, leaving you with hints of potpourri, blueberry jam and dark chocolate.
Ray Jordan Wine Guide
Here’s the secret with this new wine from Wills Domain. Make sure you decant it. Only then, even as a young wine, will you start to capture those spice perfumed, highly scented characters from the outset. It’s a blend of the five Bordeaux varieties and predominantly cabernet sauvignon. This is such a classy wine with sweet vibrant fruit displaying wild brambly haracters, dark chocolate and deep blackcurrant. It’s all held together with brilliant focus and control.
James Halliday Wine Companion
Everything has fallen into place and behaving: the oak, the core of spicy blackberries, mulberries and sweet plums, and the fine tannins with a savoury lift. This has power and depth.
Winestate Magazine- July / August 2017
Mixed aromas of fresh black fruits and good oak. Delicious, soft and sweet in the mouth with the oak tending to dominate the long lingering flavours.
