This is a dense wine with a bouquet of blackcurrant and blueberry.
In the mouth, the first impression is straightforward yet delicate. The fine tannins melt into the body of the wine thus giving an excellent structure that ensures good keeping potential. It will therefore improve over the years for greater appreciation with maturity.
