A rich, intense and dynamic palate. Rushes from front to back with pace, balance and precision. Generous and lush with supple dark fruits, rich dark chocolate and vibrant, fresh tannins that add structure and vigour to the wine.
"From two vineyards that shone in the cool conditions. Generous use (70%) of new French and American oak is usual practice for Bethany, likewise 18 months maturation. Good retention of colour; the elegant, fresh, medium-bodied palate is a reflection of the cool, dry vintage. Some may wonder where the wine is headed, the answer decades away, or drink tonight - such is the magic of the vintage." 95 points and a Gold Medal, James Halliday Wine Companion 2021
