Toppers Mountain Tannat Wild Ferment 2013

Bit of funk and meatiness to this one on opening, with chocolate bullets and herbal, undergrowth notes on the nose.

Medium to full bodied, but it's superbly balanced and rather fine - particularly given its just under 16% alcohol. Delightfully fine tannin, berry and briar, with licorice. Manages to balance that fruit presence with long smooth tannins and a savoury twist on its back end. 

Good wine. Real interest, satisfaction and presence. 92
