Let's call this one a discovery...last in a lineup of wines to be tasted, nothing much expected then BANG WOW! Aromatic perfumes of raspberry and red florals backed by earthy charcuterie notes. The palate just rolls on through, it's gorgeous with layers of raspberry and blackberry across slightly chewy tannins. More please.
"Given we seem to be going a bit on Cabernet Franc here lately.
Blackcurrant, raspberry, a little meaty, a little perfumed, a dusting of five spice. It’s light to medium-bodied, a tickle of spritz, juicy but also kind of bloody and savoury, a fine stalky grip to tannin, and a juicy amaro-laced finish of good length. A sort of rose oil character in the aftertaste. Different. A very appealing thing to drink."
