Tasting Notes

Deep purple core, with a ruby rim. The wine opens with sweet floral perfumes, developing further to reveal wild bramble, mulberry, spicy rhubarb and liquorice. The palate is generous and juicy, but also quite focussed and elegant, with harmonious, well integrated oak, and a clean, appetising and long finish.

Ageing Potential

Can be enjoyed now for the fresh vibrant fruit. Cellaring for 2 – 4 years will reward you well with secondary flavours and more complexity.
