HOW IT LOOKS
Crimson red core with purple reflections along the edges.
HOW IT SMELLS
A dominate plum profile with some darker brambly notes and hints of wild blueberry. Do you get the savoury, funky notes? A unique combo that reminds us of fig newtons or mincemeat.
All of the talks about mincemeat and filling makes us think of pie. This is a great wine for a savoury meat pie, from chicken to beef and everything in between.
HOW IT TASTES
Slick and soft across the palate; the medium body is fleshy and supple. The fruit flavours are darker, very ripe blackberry, black cherry and plums. We pick up on the fig newton filling, with prune and raisin replacing the fresher berries through the finish. Good acidity that is fresh, but not overly present, with light tannins. The finish is moderate, with a touch of heat.
