A stunning, gleaming light garnet red colour. The nose is characteristic of this relatively unknown grape, with deliciously fruity small red berries, pomegranate and cherry, threaded through with floral notes, white pepper, mint and aniseed. Delicate, fresh and fruity in the mouth with very fine, upfront tannins. It is a variety that offers the simple pleasure of an honest wine in notes of blackcurrant and redcurrant. The 2020 vintage is a generous one, to be drunk with a plate of charcuterie, a barbecue, and good friends. May be serve chilled.
