Tasting Notes

Very intense, complex nose of rich red cherries, juicy, ripe blackberries and a slight note of damson all held together by very appealing animal and savoury notes. The palate has layer, upon layer of flavours and the more time you spend with this wine the better it gets. Cherries, wild strawberries and crushed red plums hit initially, followed by strong savoury tones which blend beautifully with the complex minerality from this superior terroir. It results in a long but also incredibly delicate finish. This is a wine of finesse, drinking extremely well now.
