The 2015 Vanya is beautifully fragrant, silky, with spices. Almost like a Cabernet cake. Great balance, finesse, and length. There is a prettiness, backed by steel. Red fruits, tobacco box, florals, notably violets. There are the finest, velvety tannins.
Not a hiccup to be found in this wonderfully seamless wine, which maintains its intensity throughout. There is no real evidence of oak to be found, and it offers an almost surreal complexity. The wine reflects the finesse of the 2015 vintage, and for me 99 points (and even that seems churlish).
This wine has legitimate claims on the title of “most elegant wine ever made in Australia,” although good luck getting that past half the wine makers in the country.
