    Winemaker's Notes:

    The year was marked by low rainfall and a heat wave in the first two weeks of August, with temperatures above 40°C. This made for an exceptionally early vintage.

    This is a powerful, rich and concentrated vintage. The nose is intensely fruity with lots of spice and the palate combines elegance and richness. A good sugar/spice balance suggests that it is suitable for aging.

    Before bottling, it retains its exceptional power with notes of vanilla and an amazingly long finish.
