Enticingly fragrant yet at once Grange - elements of cola, bay leaf, malt, Indian spices and nougat. An ethereal oriental lift of glazed Peking Duck is interspersed with fermented black Chinese tea.
Oak at one with the wine, other aromatics unite to create a continuum of spice and fruit. Impressive. Seamless refined. Classic Grange structure - tight, defined and balanced with slatey/sandy tannins. Saturated fruits - blackberry and concentrated Satsuma plum skin.
A darkened flavour theme of chocolate, liquorice and fermented black Chinese tea mask any overt presence of new oak, courting a long, effortless finish. Intense, powerful. The wait for this Grange release has indeed been worthwhile - arguably the finest vintage since Mother Nature's endowment of a number of stellar 1990s vintages.
Certainly stylistically in the mould of the wonderful 1990 and 1996 vintages.
