A wine which bowled me over
Clean, youthful, open , very fruity and mentholée fresh.
Complex, lifted (as in nose clearing fresh eucalyptus!) , aromas: garrigue (lavender, thyme, fennel, rosemary), gourmet crunchy fresh red fruits – redcurrants, red cherries with an incredible fresh backbone - eucalyptus. Faint animal overtones – musk.
Dry, fresh acidity, medium + tannins, soft, fine-grained.
Med + alc. and body. Full of flavour on the mid-palate – crunchy red fruits. Deep with an incredible complexity of flavour, and amazing freshness.
Flavour characteristics: Fruity – red currants; spicy – liquorice/fennel;
Seductive mouth feel, fresh, fruity. Full of flavour through the mid-palate.
Lingering, persistent almost endless finish – elegant, fresh, scented, with core flavours of red fruits and fennel;
Well balanced – between sweetness, acidity, tannin, alcohol and fruit.
Outstanding wine! I am bowled over. It has balance, complexity, length and depth of flavour – not the concentration, but it doesn’t need it;
