Tasting Note:

There is a welcome breadth and generosity of fruit, providing body to cover the tight and crispy tannins. Lifting floral notes strike first, followed by a refreshing sapidity and bitter herb freshness. The fruit is a little darker than usual, brambles mixing with loganberries as well as a touch of mint and cassis leaf.
