Cherry liqueur, dried herbs, five spice (heavier on the cloves), new leather. Juicy sweet fruit and the Mataro dried herb and assorted savouries, fine grained tannin, clean acidity and a plump sweet fruited finish. Shows a bit of warmth, but goes pretty well. Hearty.

Bandol in Provence, France, has long been a ‘go-to’ region of choice for Tim Smith and give inspiration for this wine.

Only a limited amount made this year due to the very low yielding vintage. 3 different vineyards made the cut; 2 from Greenock, and 1 from Light Pass. Vine age 50-114 years of age. The resultant wine is deceptively powerful and needs some air to really show its majesty. The palate is indicative of the vintage; structured and lithe-one for the cellar for sure.
