One of the few remaining Mount Pleasant wines that sees some new small format oak, though I’d suggest the usage here is a long way from being excessive. The consensus at the winery seems to be that the ‘Estate’ wines really shone in 2017. I’d not argue.

Dark fruit, boysenberry, pepper, hazelnut, liquorice, that distinct hillside earthiness, and sensible vanilla oak in support. Medium to full-bodied, deep in fruit and concentration, yet like most of the 2017 wines, not stolid or heavy: there’s convincing life and energy here. Tannin is rich and nourishing, acidity well settled, and a finish that’s kind of umami, yet pretty and red fruited too. It’s an outstanding OP&OH. GW.
