Tasting Notes
Appearance: Dark cherry tones of deep intensity with hints of plum and garnet rim.
Nose: Wild fruits and dark berries are underpinned by subtle and elegant aromas reminiscent of the terroir, scrub, rockrose, flint, combined with notes of toast and chocolate from the oak.
Palate: Ripe but elegant fruit concentration matched with earthy, mineral notes and a smooth, round mouthfeel is the background to this outstanding wine. A textured palate that is full-bodied and has layers of complexity from rich berry notes to hints of earthy scrub and fennel, toast and vanilla, fig, clove and forest floor. A perfect balance of black fruit scent with the mineral characteristics of the estate, its taste is broad and elegant, leaving the unique aftertaste expressive of this terroir.
