Tasting Notes

A bright deep dark cherry coloured wine with violet tints. The nose is lifted and very expressive. Ripe blackberry, fresh blackcurrants enriched with ripe red berries and soft touch of floral scent & red earth. On the palate generous fruit flavours, silky tannin structure and fresh finish. It offers exotic spice and a mineral, earthy edge that develops in a complex, very elegant and lingering aftertaste. Undoubtedly wine that surprises.
