Here he has plundered Grenache, Syrah and Petite Syrah for the flagship Abstract blend. It’s a bold and assertive but brilliantly on-song – note-perfect in fact, with blackberry, red liquorice and earth combining to create a soulful, ethereal wine.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up bombastic notions of crushed black cherries, warm plums and blueberry compote with hints of dried herbs, spice box and new leather. Full-bodied, the palate explodes with rich, ripe black and blue berry preserves and a velvety texture, finishing long and vibrant. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
