The palest of salmon pinks; this is a wonderfully pure, fresh flavoured wine with delightful red berry aromatics. The red fruit characters are echoed on the palate, which has a slight sparkle giving the wine its lovely freshness and fruity vibrancy through to an elegant and mineral finish.
A bouquet of crushed strawberries, sweet spice is complemented by floral notes of violet and hawthorn. Powerful and generous, with a velvety texture and a revitalising freshness, this wine is built on tension and stamped with a brilliant salinity
Initially the bouquet shows concentrated, very ripe black fruit. After a little time in the glass, more complexity with grilled spice and toasted oak unfolds. The palate is lush and opulent, with velvety tannins. The aromas of blackberries, black cherries and plums reappear with mint overtones. The finish is long and in perfect balance.
