Description

Ageing:

In 4+ year old oak barrels for 10 months.

Tasting Notes:

Typical pale garnet colour. Delicate aromas of pomegranate, sour cherry, red forest fruits with a citrus edge of blood orange and ripe grapefruit. Subtle notes of wet earth, forest floor and spices lingering in the background. Lovely balance in structure showing vibrantly fresh acidity woven with fine, well integrated tannins. Refreshing, elegant and perfumed finish.
