Only 75 dozen made of this wine. Brunello clone sangiovese planted in the Greenstone Vineyard. Always released with five years of age, though it has only been released twice (2009 was the other wine so far). Stellar wine by Adam Foster and Lincoln Riley.

Serious feeling wine of savouriness, sinewy texture, structure and impact from the get go. Dusty, earthy scents over brambles and dried black berries, loads of perfume, edging into secondary character in a charcuterie and brick dust kind of way. Lean and mouthwatering in the palate, acidity is superb, tinged with amaro-herbal character, bloody almost, with red dried fruits second fiddle. Leather developing. Those tannins. Medium weight and compact. All up: Wow.
