Amherst distinguishes its exceptional vintages, naming them after regional folklore, such as the ancient Chinese market gardens, which dispensed fresh produce to the gold fields of yesteryear. Hand-picked fruit, wild yeast fermented, basket pressed, 25% new French oak. This is classic Pyrenees Cabernet with lashings of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit characters, mint and restrained oak influences. There was no 2018 vintage produced.

(2019 vintage) Nutty, charry, black olive, samphire, floral perfume, umeboshi plum and blackberry. It’s medium-bodied, saline and dark, with a smooth web of graphite tannin, subdued acidity, and a fairly long fine perfumed finish. Needs a little while to come up, slightly sullen as at now, but with more to come, I suspect.
