A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: This is soft and round, with quite prominent strawberry notes emerging from the red berry flavours. There's good vibrancy and value here. Sourced from vines approaching 15 years of age grown in sandy soils, this will be a fantastic summer sipper and is ideal for grilled seafood, picnic fare or light appetizers.
