Tasting Notes

A medium tawny in colour which shows a clear leaning towards grenache noir in the blend, the nose here is one of dried cherries and figs, with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. The palate is smooth and silky, with vibrant acidity and fresh red and black fruits countering the sweetness and leaving only a medium-sweet perception. The dried fruit and layer-upon-layer of savoury and sweet spices add wonderful complexity. The finish is spicy, almost peppery and enduring in it's fruit power.

Chocolate, granite, floral, incredible depth and layering on the finish. Such incredible density! A powerful and infinite palate.
