This wine displays a lifted perfume of violets whilst flavours of juicy blackcurrant & plums delight against a backdrop of fine grained tannins and savoury French oak. In assembling this blend, our winemakers have crafted a finished wine in which the contribution of each assembled part made greater the whole, yet which presents a degree of refinement and seamlessness in a blended varietal wine that is so often elusive.
