Light and fruity reds

Key notes: Light and elegant with juicy, fresh fruit.

Typical aromas and flavours: Bright, sometimes 'crunchy' red berry fruit flavours. These wines are often best when drunk young as it is their youthfulness that gives the fresh mouth feel.

Structure: Light-medium bodied, light tannins, good acidity – that lip-smacking feeling. Not intense – more restrained and elegant.

Examples of 'Light and Fruity' reds: Pinot Noir, Gamay, Italian Nebbiolo, New World Merlot
