A deep, concentrated ruby red. The nose boasts an impressive complex of aromas, opening immediately with intense notes of fresh berryfruit, particularly blackcurrant and raspberry, followed by a hint of smooth vanilla hovering in the background. The palate offers an ultra-appealing crispness complementing its flavours of ripe fruit, dried flowers, and spices edged in smoke. Dense-packed, velvettextured tannins contribute to an impressive structure that gives the wine its solid backbone. A near-endless finish provides a seductive vein of tangy mineral and spice, completing a wine that showcases a marriage of crispness and power.
