Extraordinarily complex on the nose, with fresh aromas of spice, gum cistus and wild berry fruit. Everything is well-balanced, resulting in a wine of great freshness and depth. Lush and charming beginning that leads to a tight-knit structure of firm, finely-textured tannins nicely wrapped in complex flavours of wild
berry fruit and fresh spice. A unique and distinctive wine with an elegant and lingering finish.
