"The moniker 'Puritan' implies not only organic viticulture as is the estate's wont, but a
nakedness of both oak and preservatives (read, SO2). The result is a bright, luminescent
crimson upon pouring. The aromas, a staggering semblance to some of my favourite
northern Rhone expressions: wood-smoke, lilac, charcuterie, seaweed and blueberry.
Scrumptious, firecracker aromatics! The Vale's inherent generosity flows across the
palate, embedded with a warmth of mouthfeel, aniseed and Christmas cake spice.
A delicious wine of considerable swagger, best enjoyed with a chill."
Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday Wine Companion '20 *Note: tasting note is for 2019 vintage
When we say Puritan is a bright young thing, it almost precisely describes the style. It is full of dark and red fruits and plums and blackberries, too. Some bramble and violet too. Puritan has a great, vibrant dark purple colour, too which lets you know just how young it is. The palate is soft but with structure. - Winemaker's Note
