    Lifted aromas of red berry fruit, cherry and savory herb set the table for a smorgasbord of palate-coating flavour. Racy passion fruit and tangy red currant interweave with juicy black cherry and ripe raspberry berry notes providing a yin and yang / sweet and tang experience thatÆs balanced and beautiful. ItÆs medium-weight and well textured with a dry, mouth-watering finish that lingersùyou shouldnÆt, the price-quality balance tips well in your favour.
