This dark, inky, vibrant wine entices with an explosive mix of liquorice, lavender, violets and cloves. The entry is silky and soft followed by a glossy texture on the palate that combines flavours of cinnamon, white pepper and spice to offer an attractive density and mouthfeel. Rich, lingering fruit and a long, pleasant finish.
