An alluring, complex nose of herbs and cocoa powder over dark berry fruit and a gentle whiff of floral violets. The wine is equally appealing in the mouth. Bright purple, soft berry fruit – nicely ripe and succulent with rich fruitcake flavour and a reminder of that violet nuance. Velvety smooth and rounded in texture, the palate is sleek, suave and serious. Well-knit oak frames the fruit and provides backbone and structure to conclude in a the long rich finish.
Appealing playful lightness of pear and nectarine on the nose. Tangy, light and zesty, the mouthful is fresh and succulent. Intense lemon zip accompanies pear drop and stone fruit vibrance. Lively, clean and crisp with a gentle lees suggestion. Lightweight and easy to enjoy. Pleasantly dry to the end.
Enticing aromas of ripe plum and cherry are enhanced by a subtle spice and cedar element. The palate boasts more of the same: plump black cherries with ripe plum and an exciting lifted spicy lift. A gentle squeeze of wood tannin and a cedar note adds interest. The wine is rounded, supple and comforting in texture, all the way to a long, rich finish.
