Kirrihill 'The Pastor': 95 points and Top Rank Recommended
"Deeply intense black core into a vibrant ruby rim. Black fruits, mint leaves, and drying beef aromatics. A big and meaty red, dark fruits, bresaola and black olive tapenade fill every corner of the mouth. The tannins are equally muscular and do what is required to corral the intensity, pushing it very long and deep in the finish. I would definitely suggest a large cut of protein to make the most of that structure."

Score: 95 ★★★★★

Alcohol: 14.5%

Ageing: now to 2035

Food: slow roast sirloin with sauce Bordelaise
