The colour is a youthful dark red with good depth. The aroma displays vibrant red berry fruits, spice, soy and some savoury meats. The palate is initially full of bright fresh fruits which slowly warm and make way for darker flavours and chocolate tannins. Good acidity on the finish completes this seriously great value wine by providing structure and versatility with food.
