WINE REVIEW

The latest 2016 vintage red wine release from Polgoon is made from 100% Rondo, an early ripening red grape that grows particularly well in England.

The wine is vivid in colour, with vibrant magenta and purple tones.

An open nose of full-on blackcurrant with plummy notes and a twist of spiced vanilla and dark flowers.

Despite being a light to medium bodied wine, the overall profile feels fuller than many English reds. Vibrant, tangy blackcurrant flavours with some red fruit in there and a pronounced acidity.

There’s an underlying savoury note lingers with hints of sweet vanilla and light tannin on the finish.
