Gentle, plummy, mellow and rounded. An elegant wine from Bordeaux
Tasting Notes: An elegant wine, displaying cinnamon, spices, plum and morello cherry with some toasted notes. The palate has all the flavours held together by smooth tannins, which allow complexity and texture to flourish to a long and delicious finish. The wine is matured 50% in oak and 50% in stainless steel so the oak is nicely controlled.
