A very pretty, pale garnet red colour. The nose is very typical of this grape variety, fruity and fresh with red cherry in all its forms, and floral notes such as broom flowers, followed by softly spicy notes of peppermint and star anise. In the mouth it is diaphanously fruity and bright, with fine tannins and the delicious gluggability of strawberry, pomegranate, cherry and redcurrant. This is a wine that we prefer served simply, lightly chilled, with some cold meats, or an easy-going barbecue, but above all with friends.
