The initial nose is very representative of the Iberian varietals with a savory and slightly spicy richness about it. Although fully fermented with no residual sugars, the strong fruit characters deliver perceived sweetness, yet herbaceous. The driving fruit character is strawberry, something not often found in “bigger” reds, followed by some lovely softer blackberry notes. Ageing in only old French oak has allowed this wine to truly express its fruit nature, which makes it a lovely wine to pair with so many different foods from spicy through to many deserts.
