Elderton Ode to Lorraine CSM 2018
It has a delicious sweet plummy blackcurrant fruit intensity, balanced with some nice sappy oak with a little cedary character. It’s very long in the mouth with a delicious, sweet fruit character. Sinewy tannins thread through the ripe fruit, leading into a dry, focussed finish. This is one of the best yet under this label.
