Judges Tasting Notes

Amber bronze colour, deep and intense. A whiff of oolong tea and smokey flint, followed by bright zesty grapefruit and kumquat then a nutty walnut skin savouriness. In the mouth there is a delicious raisin element to the fruit, giving a gentle spicy illusion of sweetness. A truly elegant wine with very long lingering, gentle finish.
