On the palate, the wine is full flavoured but elegant with dominant fruits of wild red, black and blue berries combined with balsamic, cedar wood and well polished soft tannins. Just the right balance of acidity and tannin on the finish to complement the fruit and give the wine ageing potential. Gorgeous length with a balsamic mineral finish.
