“From the township of Novello and from what is now widely recognized as one of the denomination’s top vineyard sites, this stunning wine offers intense aromas of wild berry, new leather, flowers, camphor and grilled herb. The delicious, structured palate shows finesse and power, featuring ripe red cherry, blood orange, cedar, licorice and iron while noble tannins provide support. Reflecting the vintage, this won’t need years to come around but will also age well for at least another decade. Drink 2022–2032.” – Kerin O’Keefe
“Dark red fruit, nutmeg, dried herbs, new leather and a deeper slightly earthy bass note rumbling away. Succulent mix of red cherry and berries, plenty of spice and orange peel, distinctly earthy and ‘mineral’ feel to tannin here, a bit gravelly and they spread through the mouth so nicely. Pulls savoury on the long finish, but also offers a little rosy perfume as it goes. Perhaps my favourite wine from the 2017 Vajra release.” – Gary Walsh
