Tasting Notes

Nose

The colour of an Australian rose wine and the aroma of cranberry, jam skimmings, raspberry and a little whiff of damp grass.

Palate

As the nose suggests, very fruity but also with a little hint of charred smoke. Much more complex - blueberries, marzipan/cherry stone. Punchy.

Finish

Long and fruity.

Comment

A balance struck between spirit and oak(s). It shouldn't work, but it does.
