Decorates the glass with a bright magenta colour. Juicy and vibrant on the nose, this wine displays red and dark fruit flavours – raspberry, blackberry, and cherry, with lifts of violet florals and sweet spice. The palate is lively and bright with a burst of red fruits. A medium-bodied composition with soft, fine-grained tannins gives length and depth, finishing with a touch of spice and savoury oak. Very easy drinking, this wine is ready to be enjoyed now but will drink to 2020.
