“Well. This beautiful wine is all concentration, steely finesse, elegance and power. The fourth release of this wine (I discuss the 2011 further on), it, like the cabernet, is just the ten best barrels of the vintage. If there is a particularly strong vintage, Ben Miller does not opt to increase production of the 9th Chamber wines, instead more great wine flows down the hierarchy. Hurrah to there being so many great vintages! White peach, pepper, pink grapefruit, toasted cashew, and grilled yellow peach. On the palate it is all lemon zest, sea salt, a fine but definite chalky texture, and great great great length of flavour. Rich, but restrained. A wonderful wine. If the 2011 is anything to go by, it will age tremendously.”
