Originally dubbed ‘RWT’ for ‘red winemaking trial’, when the first vintage, the 1997, hit the shelves, it has outgrown that and we’ll now see it gradually start to be called ‘Bin 798’. 17 months in French hogsheads, just 70% new, ensure a very different style to the all-American oak Grange. Mulberries, a lovely slightly smoky note, spices, dark chocolate. Good grip and excellent length. This is a cracker wine.
Deep ruby. Dark fruits, some spices, anise, rich and fruity nose yet tight and firm. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, red berries and spices, detailed, ripe and rich, long. Juicy. 94
Medium deep colour. Intense dark chocolate, black olive, blackberry aromas with graphite, smoky bacon notes. Richly concentrated, almost plush in texture with deep set dense blackberry, dark cherry fruit, plentiful chocolaty dry tannins, paneforte, cedar oak complexity. Finishes firm with long cedary notes. Still elemental and unformed. Needs more time to come around. Should be kept for at least four or five years.
