Single vineyard here, wild fermented in stainless, then aged four months in concrete tanks before six months in oak; a mix of French and Slavonian barrels, 20% new, and a mix of large and small formats. More obvious seriousness here, initial impressions took us to a freshly opened bar of Old Gold Rum ‘n Raisin dark chocolate.
“Rich, dark cherry, chocolate and almond, with a spicy floral perfume, and a sort of ‘new car’ smell. Ripe, fleshy, coffee and chocolate, with a cinch of dried herb and amaro, grainy tannin, and a finish of fine length. No shortage of flavour and impact. Very good Monty.” 93 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
