Description

Tasting Note

Tasting Note

This wine has a deep garnet colour. Spicy floral notes can be found on the nose. On the palate it is powerful and round yet with balanced tannins. There are fruity flavours of rasberry and spice giving a wine which should be cellared for a couple of years before it reaches its peak.
