“Medium to deep red colour with faint tinges of purple and brick-red. The bouquet is intense and bright, with peppermint and oak, and sweetly ripe blackberries. The wine is firm and intense, and fills the mouth. Concentration. The core of the wine has a lovely plush lushness followed by firming tannins. Delicious. Drink 2020-2032”
