Winemakers Notes:
COLOUR:
Purple rim, black core.
NOSE:
Blackness prevails… black pudding, black shoe polish (and tanned leather), black liquorice, black olive, black jelly-beans?
Scents of liqueured cherry, saturated dark plum, beetroot and
a cooling humbug peppermint impression.From beneath, a waft of dark paste – quince/mocha/praline/coffee grind…
PALATE:
A complex/kaleidoscopic flavour mosaic presides. These flavours appear turbo-charged – liqueured fruits, elderberry, wild raspberry, pomegranate, praline, almond. Full-bodied – rich, dark and concentrated, and yet still chewy, fresh and youthful – potently geared/tuned. Excellent length – driven by waves of intense fruits, a well of unbridled fine tannins, and a wash of awakening acidity.
