Colour is a deep purple with a rose rim. Floral aromas with a nice sweet spice nice, more redolent bouquets of fig and pepper, jellied apple and dried currants. Sweet berry fruit dominates, the tannins are light on their feet, dancing around the palate and skimming over the tongue with refreshing mint and rosey characters.
