2022 Polygon No.5 Magnum

2022 Polygon No.5 Magnum

A deep and thoughtful wine that at the same time manages to be fresh and expressive. The nose is complex displaying red fruit, amaro hints and forest floor notes with decaying roses. The palate is awash with ripe cranberry and pomegranate and is chalky and energetic in its texture. A seamless wine with amazing ageing potential.

Grenache from the fractured schist and clays of Polygon No. 5 on Alkina's Greenock estate; 70% whole bunches and raised in unlined concrete tulip and egg. Perhaps a little more in the way of bass tones off Polygon No. 5. The fruit a slightyly darker shade of red, a sense of compression to the tannin profile, again toothsome and chalky, yet demanding more attention. Spice, dried meats and dried flowering herbs, too, with a long finish with just the right amount of sinew.

Deep red-purple but not too dark. Dusty terracotta earthy nose, black cherry beneath. Rich, dense, concentrated palate, Hefty, big-boned, powerful, masses of tannins but very good tannins. The most structured wine.

97 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

2022 was a compressed vintage in the Barossa, delivering freshness over amplitude. Not a bad thing when it comes to the resolute urgency of now, such an important thing at times. Riffs on tamarind, dried rose, lime blossom and exotic citrus notes, all muddled with clove, ginger and bibs and bobs of the souk. A little less heft and grandeur of recent years, but no less fidelitous to place, type and philosophy. Plenty of marrow to suck on: real people, a great terroir and organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Medium-deep red-purple colour; fresh and bright also on the nose, with cherries and a note of bubblegum, a faint reductive overtone that is barely perceptible; the palate has very good intensity and abundant powdery tannins, the finish long and drying. Density, concentration and power aplenty. This would richly reward more time in the cellar. If drinking young, serve it with hearty protein.
