(bottling in weeks) pale pink; red cherry, redcurrant mixed fruit aroma, something of warm stones, garrigue in behind. The palate starts on a tight attack, led by red fruit. There is a light herb tea infusion note on the finish. Acidity is evident in mid-palate – there is slight bite there. Pretty stylish. 13°. To 2014. €7.50. Feb 2012
