This wine defines charisma! Juicy plum and dark cherry fruits combine with licks of mint and fennel that overlay a slatey-granite earthiness. It’s a deep, dark, dangerously intense cabernet with integrated tannins and dense dark fruits wound up in savoury spice.
Fresh lime pith, almost a sorbet zing, with subtle chalky acids. This wine shows hints of elderflower with a powerful underlying depth, finishing with a racey hint of fleshy texture. She’s zesty, seductively layered and unarguably sophisticated!
A rich creaminess sits up front and that briar, spice and darkest berries continue in-line in the palate. Nothing prickly about the tannin structure though; they have benefited from being afforded extra time in oak and sit like gentle grape dust in the mouth.
