Vibrant red with purple tinge
Black cherry and plum with a hint of pepper
Fruit driven, crunchy and fresh with red and blue berry flavours and soft persistent tannins.
This wine screams out to be paired with protein, roasted, smoked or BBQed.
What Alex Mackay and Léonore Salancon (our winemaker) did
The grapes were fermented separately in stainless steel and, when blended, were given a taste of oak.
What the wine says
