Bibi Graetz Testamatta 2019

$97.00

This year, there’s no James Suckling chart. Not because it won’t outpoint the big guns, it will. I just blind tasted the line up last week. But this time, the other ratings aren’t in and there won’t be any 2019 20th Anniversary Testamatta left if we wait.

Decanter had this to say in their 96 point review: “This just shines from the moment it’s poured. Layered and complex this is a gem of a wine filled with cherry, raspberry, damson and caramel notes alongside a savoury edge that makes it so moreish. Tannins that support but don’t overwhelm give a nice overall weight to the palate while the flavous linger on the long finish.”
And always the fan, James Suckling gave it 97 points: “Very attractive combination of dried fruit and spices with black cherries and plums. Aromas of flowers and sandalwood, too. Full-bodied and very refined, yet intense, with plush, velvety tannins that are wonderfully integrated and intertwined with the fruit.”

This is the 20th Anniversary, and in addition to being excellent, I’m sure it will become highly collectable. I’d tuck a few away in a dark corner for at least a few years.

97 Points, James Suckling

Very attractive combination of dried fruit and spices with black cherries and plums. Aromas of flowers and sandalwood, too. Full-bodied and very refined, yet intense, with plush, velvety tannins that are wonderfully integrated and intertwined with the fruit. Ripe center palate. Tight at the end, suggesting the need for some serious bottle age. Very structured.
