Churchill’s Vintage 2016 has plenty of intensity on the nose, with concentrated aromas of fresh blackberries and spices, and with graphite and herbal undertones. Fresh and vibrant with a meaty middle palate, showing layers of black cherries and chocolates encased in a high tone shell of green tea and gum cistus flavours.
