A Cabernet with balance, freshness and drinkability at a young age. As always, very much in the blueberry fruit spectrum on the nose with ripe leafy cassis notes. Very energetic dark wine with beautifully ripe fruit flavours. The palate is all silky cassis fruit supported by ripe, savoury whole bunch tannins. All grapes are totally hand-harvested. 100% whole bunches are added to the small ferment tanks and hand crushed to release the juice. The vineyards are positioned on a totally organic and shockingly steep slope, sourced from Timo's home block.

Pepper, green and white, whiff of beetroot, then the cassis, sweet and pretty. Lovely start through the perfume. Mouth-filling with sweet, berry-jammy fruit flavours with a corkscrew of fine, silty tannins. Flavours, exotic and intriguing, shift around the palate nervously. Tongue darts to seek out sweet, chewy, peppery, green. Wild style here, but it’s such a blast, and there’s a distinct slinkiness to the wine. Drink up.
