Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Mature fruit aromas, mainly cherries, interwoven with subtle nuances of oak and liquorice. Good underlying acidity that provides vibrancy, what makes it perfect for enjoying it with food. Sweet tannins that open out to fruit.

    smooth purple hue, oddly not very aromatic. good fruit taste, plum, cherry followed by earthy tones and a slight spicy tannic finish with some hints of oak

    Medium body. Cherry and black pepper. Easy drinking but unspectacular.
