Ruby red, purple. An delightfully aromatic nose with predominantly Violet and Raspberry, but with hints of Rose and Redcurrants and a little anise in the background. Light tannins and youthful acidity give the palate a food friendly structure and finish. In its youth, this wine will benefit from decanting to allow the aromatics to open and expand the mid palate. The wine will also be good for cellaring for up to 10 - 12 years.
