Brimming with dried fruit flavours, smooth silk tannins. An exceptionally refined wine.
Tasting Notes: Brimming with dried fruit, wild strawberries, fresh plum & raspberry with hints of herbs and pepper in the finish. Soft vanilla oak and chocolate adds to the character. Although the tannins are firm , they are soft and silky carrying the flavours to a delicious long finish. Lovely citrussy acidity keeps this wine fresh. This is an exceptionally smooth, refined wine.
