Tasting notes: Nose: Earthy, leafy notes prevail with dried native mint adding a lovely herbal note. The wine reveals cocoa powder, red currants, and blood orange. Underlying cedar notes and cherry wood add further oak-derived intrigue. Palate: An abundance of delightful primary fruit characters with blueberries, strawberries, and pomegranates competing for attention. Firm tannins with length and drive are supported by a seam of refreshing acidity.
