Tasting Notes

Brilliant rose petal in colour. Lifted wild strawberries and floral notes but an underlying dried apricot. The palate balances the sweetness and savoury of rose with perfection: fresh boysenberry and juniper berries on the initial entry. A savoury, textured phenolic line drives through the palate that gives the wine infinite drinkability.
