The bouquet is mesmerising, ripe, and deep. The opening notes are a blend of dark spicy notes and cocoa which develop very quickly into fruit aromas. Fruit reigns
supreme, with roasted fig and apricot and candied orange. The overall effect exudes smoky accents.
The fullness of this wine is immediately striking. Its intensity and succulence set the tone through the sweetness and crispness of the flavours. The silky mouthfeel melts into a smooth, tight, and grainy structure with just a hint of vegetable flavours. This wine expresses an appealing brininess and saline character.
