Fruit, tannin, an array of flavours, both fruit-driven and herbal. This isn’t bad. It’s alive with sweet fruit on the nose and mostly, too, on the palate, before herb and brine notes sweep through. Comes up well as it rests in the glass. Rating 88 - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (NOV/2015)
Winery Tasting Notes
Concentrated, bright ruby appearance.
Delicate and expressive bouquet is laden with ripe, red and black fruit aromas and spices, enhanced by well- integrated oak character.
The wine wonderfully fleshy and fruity on the palate, supported by silky tannins. Overall, the wines offers great balance and is deliciously fresh on the finish.
