Comparatively open for Ferrous, the 2018 vintage shows typical floral notes of violet and rose together with earthier tones of beetroot, brown spice and subtle whole-bunch influence. The trademark rust and iron quality float in and out providing complexity and engagement. Medium-bodied, yet naturally powerful, the palate is full of intense red berry flavour together with a line of dusty tannin that helps drive and support. Blood orange and a vibrant berry flavour enhance the long and compelling finish. Showing modestly now, Ferrous demands cellaring to fully show its potential.
