The first thing noticeable about this wine, apart from its relatively thin, light red complexion, is the beautifully fruity nose. Great mix of English summer berries; cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. A few hints of spice and smoky mystery are hidden in there too.
On the palate, this is a very smooth fruity wine. It has low acidity and not exactly mouth-filling in texture, however there’s a very pleasant mix of summer fruit flavours. Ripe red cherries with slight raspberry tartness.
Surprising length in the finish with slight woody notes with super smooth, subtle tannin.
Definitely one of the better English reds out there. It’s very light, but I was surprised by the evolution in the mid taste and lingering finish.
