Tasting Notes

“Exuberance” is the word here: from the deep - ruby hues that dominate this mulberry-coloured blend, through the nose and palate, each in his own way, the hallmarks of a great wine. The nose is cedar and sweet vanilla, followed by a rush of ripe, dark berry-fruit in profusion. The palate shows balance and harmony within its very elegant structure. A beautifully proportioned wine; tightly and neatly packed to provide great drinking pleasure.

Blend Information
