Notes of mulberries, redcurrant and blackcurrant, with a bitter-sweet character of crème de cassis with a touch of underlying parma violets. The taste is extremely fine red- fruit, raspberries come to the fore and are backed up with a touch of buttery chocolate truffle richness. A mid-weight harmonious wine, an expression of purity and youthful fruitiness
