Winemaker Tasting Notes
This bright and lively wine is awash with notes of cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant, making this wine very approachable and expressive. The rich fruit flavours, coupled with the soft tannins adds to the wine's complexity. A lingering aftertaste of intense fresh plum and spice finishes this wine off beautifully.
