A bouquet of bright red fruits, with raspberry, cherry, and cranberry at the forefront, but delve deeper and you’ll detect subtle hints of earthy spice and a delicate floral undertone. Lively and complex, with a full-bodied texture balanced by a refreshing acidity. The red fruit flavours persist, but there's a distinct whole bunch carbonic maceration character that emerges, adding an element of complexity and intrigue.
