Elegant and racy with concentrated fruit flavours.
Tasting Notes: Modern style of wine which is complex, well structured, but elegant and youghfully racy with beautiful balance with a pleasant thickness in the mouth. It expresses the beauty of the terrior and the richness of the sultry, ripe dark fruit. Twelve months in oak barrels adds woody vanilla and caramel notes.
