Topper's Mountain Wild Ferment Tempranillo 2012

Released as a 5yo, opens with a little funk, not reductive, more like briary stem and Sapid notes. Somewhat surprising for a 5yo, and there's still a degree of primacy about proceedings. Cherry, almond paste, maybe a wholemeal toast suggestion.

Fine, powdery tannin cascades across the palate. Something akin to a meaty jus here, pan juices deglazed with a suggestion of fruit in the mix. Rare wine that balances fruit and savoury. Impressive. All the more so as a 5yo release. 91
