Description

Ageing:

In 4+ year old oak barrels for 10 months.

Tasting Notes:

Typical pale ruby colour. Delicate aromas of wild strawber- ries, red forest fruits, cherry and toffee, with subtle notes of wet, earth, forest floor and spices lingering in the background. Excellent texture, well balanced with freshness, good ripeness with fine, well integrated tannins. Refreshing, elegant and perfumed finish.
