Current vintage is a five-year-old one – it’s getting close to what’s called a museum release in Australia. It’s indeed ready to drink.
Showing some development which makes the oak integrated, though still pronounced. Smoky, licorice nose with a bit of forest floor. Medium-bodied with real density and a smooth texture, there is elegance to this. Flavorful and well structured, more tannic than Hungarian Kékfrankos, though a few from Eger bear some resemblance. Lots to enjoy here.
