Wine Details

Wine Description

Exotic, smoky nose; redcurrant, cinnamon and spice flavours and fresh acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1999 Vintage) Ruby red with garnet hues and really youthful. Well developed and intense nose, there are aromas of cinnamon, earth, sweet red cherry and strawberry, anise and Brett. Overall, a very sweet and spicy nose. Medium to full bodied, really silky, with a great mouth feel, lively and rich on the palate, extremely drinkable, with sweet and ripe tannins. There are beautiful pure sweet red cherry and warm forest floor flavors, mixed with exotic spices in the mouth. Medium to long finish, with lingering sweet red fruits and spices in the aftertaste.

    translucent ruby red, some bricking. nose is ridiculously complex: tobacco, earth, funk, dried cherries. follows thru on palate: tobacco, cherries with a wonderful mouthfeel and a lingering finish, owing to the excellent acidity.
