Lithe is the best way to describe this delicate and complex wine. Matured for 18 months in French oak barrels and bottled unfiltered. A maiden release with much promise..!
Translucent wafts of red cherry and Asian spice. Dried rose petals, pomegranate and sous bois aromatics. This interesting wine has a soft, lingering finish. Drink through to 2025.
