A stunning follow up to the 2002 vintage...This wine is a testament to the consistently quality of fruit frown by the Olivers. Opaque black crimson colour with black purple hue. Superb perfumed nose of violet, spice, vanilla and dark chocolate. Explosive, mouthfilling palate with flavours of vanilla, confectionary and spice emerging, followed by dark chocolate, liquorice over a layer of black pepper. Exceptionally long aftertaste of vanilla, blackberry and black pepper. Cellar 5-8 years (2010 – 2013)
