Bouquet: While swirling the glass one appreciates notes of red fruit like plum and cherry, accompanied with an acid touch of redcurrant and spices wrapped in elegant toasted aromas of cedar wood.
Palate: The wine presents itself fresh with medium body, marked by red fruit and elegant cool flavours of liquorice, red currant and exotic spices. The finish is long and velvety. The aftertaste is long and silky, inviting to drink some more.
