Tasting NotesA fragrant nose with bright red fruits, underpinned by cinnamon, mocha, and cumin spice as well as hints of forest floor. Plush and juicy strawberry flavours form an impression of sweetness that lends the palate richness that rolls into a textural raspberry finish. Scintillating red fruit meets savoury undertones of spice and earth generating a wine of great complexity and structure.
