Gathering Field, Thousand Candles, Australia
Stuart Proud has done himself just that. What a banger of a Bordeaux blend we have here! Bright, dark fruit on the nose with a keenly structured palate showing dark berries, sweet fruit and a peep of cedar. Totally smashable now with it’s fine grain tannin but give it 6 years and you might hear angels sing. Named Thousand Candles after a witness account of an indigenous ceremony allowing passage to European settles with flaming torches- what a tribute to the mother land.
