pure red-purple colour. Cherry fruit features in a clear-cut bouquet, a light backdrop of pepper. This has a very spicy, go-go palate, like wine from fissured rocks. It is dentelle, toothsome, carries a little late moment of gras richness, a small scented note. Clear wine, easy to drink, including solo. 13°. Bottled March 2015. To 2017 Apr 2015
