The wine has a wonderful viscosity, mouth coating and pleasantly creamy, but with an exciting streak of minerally acidity that leaves us wanting more.

A wine of intense colour with a complex profile of fresh red fruits, herbal and floral notes. The minerality is evident with notes of cool limestone and graphite. The palate is silky with a lively acidity and great structure provided by the tannins. Complex and long on the finish.
