From the winemaker…
Wonderfully ripe and beautifully lifted, the bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, game, toasted spice and floral aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that’s supple and lingering. It’s gorgeously fruited and expressed, backed by fine chalky tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry. At its best: now to 2025.
The grapes that go into our Explorer wine primarily come from the top terrace Moon Block (altitude 295m), 100% estate grown and handpicked. Stylistically, we are trying to place our more youthful vines into this wine as they tend to have a natural fruit driven exuberance which we wish to retain.
