Tasting Notes

This pure, bold expression shines with black currants and violets. Inner perfume of liquorice, sandalwood and baking spices from a lick of oak. Wonderful balance on the palate, still offering juicy acidity and a solid spine, with a mouth-watering finish.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with five-spice rubbed pork belly or Italian sausage with cumin and fennel bulb on your favourite pasta or pizza.
