Spicy red cherry and fruitcake aromas, with a brush of tobacco leaf and a gentle hint of floral overlay. Tempting and subtle. Abundant cherry and plum fruit flavours are tempered by a well-judged, Italianate, dry tannin grip. That grip is balanced by the ripeness of the fruit and a genuine succulence, which characterizes this wine. Textured and plush there is a distinct backbone of spicy oak that frames the mouthful beautifully. Lovely fruitcake, cedar and spice can be found on the layered, nuanced palate. Superb length of flavour that lingers.
Appealing playful lightness of pear and nectarine on the nose. Tangy, light and zesty, the mouthful is fresh and succulent. Intense lemon zip accompanies pear drop and stone fruit vibrance. Lively, clean and crisp with a gentle lees suggestion. Lightweight and easy to enjoy. Pleasantly dry to the end.
Broody and slightly smoky nose opens up into a combination of spice-and-Italian savory baking notes. Red fruit and cherry ﬂ avours combine to produce a juicy and soft pallet. Tight and layered tannins binds the fruit and spice components together and adds complexity. The bright, yet balanced acidity length-ens the pallet and pulls all of the fruit components trough to a seamless end.
