TASTING NOTES


Plum, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and an elegant spiciness which lead to a palate with generous flavours of white pepper, leather and forest berries.

Rich and silky tannins linger on the palate with seamless persistence.


"Wonderfully ripe and fragrant, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, sweet plum, violet and vanillin oak characters, leading to a succulent palate that is plump and fleshy"
