WINE REVIEW

Well this is quite a pleasant surprise! I would not have guessed that it was a red wine of English origin had I not known, as it is quite viscous in the glass with deep purple, almost black colour.

Very punchy nose with vibrant blackcurrant and blueberry aromas accompanied with spiced cedar wood and floral notes.

Palate is similarly rich on the juicy black fruit notes, very expressive with balanced medium acidity and sweetness. Integrated oak prompting flavours of toasted spice, cedar and juniper berry on the finish. Supple tannins round off a pretty impressive effort from Lincolnshire.
