Series C 2018 showcases beautiful purity, striking intensity and a remarkably long finish of dark fruit with a touch of clove spice. This blend displays a deep, intense ruby colour. The nose offers a remarkably complex fruit expression, opening with blackcurrant, blueberry and fresh juniper berry interwoven with sensuous violet perfume. Composed dark fruits transition to hints of chocolate and hazelnut praline. A subtle slate/lead-like minerality underlies a bittersweet, spicy Cola note. The entry is plush and weighty, with an abundance of fine-grained tannins across the palate – most reminiscent of crushed velvet. Although immediately engaging, this blend will mature most gracefully, rewarding the patient collector.
