TASTING NOTE: Youthfully charming and inviting, the bouquet shows sweet cherry, raspberry, thyme, floral and almond characters. The palate is succulent and supple with lovely fruit intensity and vibrancy, beautifully supported by silky texture and polished tannins. Harmonious and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2022.
