TASTING NOTES

A heady bouquet of cherry, ripe mulberry and satsuma plum is accompanied by hints of bacony charcuterie, star anise and green, spicy pimento. On the palate sweet

fleshy fruit is supported by fine silky tannins. Flavours of liquorice, fig and white pepper contribute to an impressive lingering finish.
