This was the first vintage under the Twin Totara label. Dark garnet in colour with rich fruit aromas - lightly floral, some bramble with a vanilla overlay.
In the palate, firm, fine tannins with cherry, blackberry, and blackcurrant fruit. A savoury backbone and a hint of chocolate. A concentrated wine from a good year in Kumeu.
This wine is drinking very well now.
