Tasting Notes

Deep, soft ruby colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet is fragrant, red-fruited, gently minty and open-knit, with a lick of char-oak, the palate following on from there with savoury flavours and drying but supple tannins surrounding a delicious core of sweet fruit. The palate is quite intense, deep and lush with a trace of mint. It's weighty, satisfying and flavoursome in its relatively unpolished but hearty way. Tasted May 2021. Huon Hooke
