Spicy melange of black and blue fruits on a bright, lively appealing nose. Hint of dark chocolate too. Abundant appeal to the bright palate which is packed with toned cherry, blueberry and black hedgerow fruits, supported by a deeper cocoa note. Layered and complex with well integrated oak, the wine is lithe and supple rather than chunky. Subtle oak spice underpins and cradles the fruit and adds length to the aftertaste. Lovely elegance overall.
