I was introduced to this wine in a staff training session with our Tasting Team's Emma, and immediately had to go back for another taste. The bright ruby colour first catches the eye, and floral hints on the nose follow. However, the real star is the sour cherry and supple crimson fruit flavours dominating the palate, with a mineral undertone giving an unexpected depth.
Although great on its own, this was a hit with Christmas dinner, with the fruit-forward style cutting through the flavours and spices, and it will certainly be pulled out on many a Sunday throughout the year. This is a truly unique wine, and I can't recommend it enough to experience something away from the well-trodden trail!
