‘Deep, bright purple/red hue, the bouquet very fresh and loaded with blood plum, raspberry and black cherry aromas, with high notes of spice and subtle pepper. Excellent intensity of flavour, soft texture, seamless, with smooth gentle tannins and early accessibility. Oak is barely perceptible. A delicious wine in a modern, fresh, fruit-driven style… Drink to 2030.’
