This is right in the slot. A Barry White meets Sade number. Sexy croon + smooth operator.
Aromas are an evocative mix of savoury goodness and berry fruits. A dollop of Viognier (2%) has given this a floral lift. Juicy red and dark berry fruits run riot with a dab of fruit sweetness. Generous in delivery but holds the medium body frame. A style of wine which is hard not to adore, the softer approach certainly has a more endearing persona. Plummy, delicate chocolate, a dusting of earth and spice round out a deliciously smooth and supple wine. Damn.
Cellar long term. Or not.
Excellent. Qwine – 17th January 2016
