At first purple fruit pastilles dominate the nose but then the scent of slightly dusty dried rose petals come to the fore with glimpses of ripe raspberry sweets.The palate is smooth and rounded with a combination of purple and red berry fruits and tinges of cinnamon.

“I grew up surrounded by vines and one of my first words was an attempt at tractor. I was hooked and I loved being involved in all the aspects of winemaking from the vineyards to the bottle. While it can be really hypnotic driving up and down the rows of the vineyard, a lot of winemaking is really loud. The harvesters, the crusher and the presses at the winery and the trucks and tractors coming and going – it can be very noisy.” – Charlie O’Brien
