Alcohol Content

Deep ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe blackberry, plum, red liquorice, black pepper and red flowers show beautifully. The palate is medium to full bodied with flavours of ripe black fruits, raspberry, anise, pepper, thyme and a lovely thread of vanilla and cedar from oak and fruit. The finish is long with a lovely savoury twist. Will drink beautifully now through 2028.
