50% of the fruit was fermented using carbonic maceration. Fragrant, dark cherry and anise flavours, with a slightly confected carbonic musk/maceration character. Appealing fresh acidity with soft, delicate tannins. Deliciously drinkable wine with character. Deserves to be served slightly chilled. (Screwcap)
