Tasting Notes

Well delineated nose profile with intense and crunchy red forest fruit. Touch of floral and blood orange expanding on the palate. Enveloping tannins balance the elevated acidity. Touch of polish add and extra layer of complexity. Delicate mid palate yet with notable concentration of flavour result in a very long cacao powder finish and mouthwatering chalky minerality of wet stones.
