Brilliant crimson.

Bouquet

Heady and exotic, the wine is redolent with raspberry and red licorice as well as rose water and an array of spices: star anise, cinnamon and nutmeg with hints of galangal and black pepper. There is also a whiff of thyme and leather.

Palate

Luscious red fruits give a succulent quality to the texture. The palate is generously fleshy with a line of fine, sandy tannins running its length. Darker fruits, florals and spices are very expressive and persistent at the finish.

Professional Reviews

… I am convinced that this will be a firm favourite with its torpedo-shaped delivery of black and red fruit coupled with one of the silkiest grenache chassis you will ever find.
