TASTING NOTES

They produced no 2017 here due to frost, so it's good to see it back and benefitting from all the work the Bartons have done here since arriving at the property. It's a little chewy and austere but good quality. The bright palate is rippling with redcurrant and bramble fruit. A cheerful wine with a firm tannic structure - quite a classical take on the vintage.

(90)/100

There is serious depth of fruit in the center palate. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a lovely finish. Shows brightness and minerality.
