Description

Alluring spicy aromatic overlay to dark berry and plum fruit with blackcurrant leaf and hint of cracked black pepper and violet. This wine is all about texture – from its soft, velvety entry to the gentleness of the spice which pervades the cassis, black fruit and cedar flavour. Ample turned earth and tobacco leaf notes too. Beautifully layered and harmonious with the fruit ideally supported and framed by sympathetic oak. Nothing is overplayed or dominant. Refined and elegant throughout. Rich, plush and nuanced with an aftertaste that lingers and lingers.
