(vat) dark plum red robe. Prune, raspberry liqueur airs, noted ripeness, feature on the nose. There are infills of spicing, damp tea leaves. The palate is sweet, all in a sealed ball, offers its content on the attack without a great stretch of flavour to follow that. It’s a sweet, straightforward southern wine that will accompany stews. There is a light chalkiness in its tannins that comes through late on. OK, but not inspiring, is tame. Best drunk on its early fruit and sweetness. 14.5°. From 2019. 2026-28 Feb 2018
