Tasting notes: Colour: Medium intensity ruby Aroma: Boldly expressive ripe red fruit with stewed rhubarb, strawberries and cream, spice and earth. Palate: The palate is layered and complex with red and dark fruit, rhubarb and beetroot with the oak offering subtle vanilla and spice characters. The fruit is framed with elegant acidity and supple tannins, delivering a finely balanced palate with length and finesse.
