2011 Offley Boa Vista

Post by AHB » 18:03 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Intense in colour, with a little more red than most. Youthful fruit dominates the nose, layered with a lovely spicy tobacco. Sweet fruit on entry shows before the spicy tannins take hold, firm but not dominating. Gently persistent on the finish. This wine has a great balance and elegance to it. Very good. 91-93. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
