Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark red.

Aroma

Spicy, dark fruit aromas of quince and fig, hints of olive and liquorice, smokey meats and a gamey overtone. Aromas of dark chocolate and fruitcake develop against a background of well-mellowed, subtle, yet spicy oak.

Palate

A medium-bodied wine with flavours at release of stewed quince, rhubarb and ripe dark fruits with further black olive notes adding a savoury tone to the finish. The tannins are soft and fine and integrate well with the balanced background spicy oak.
