Top light red

Coates La Petite Rouge 2016, Langhorne Creek & Adelaide Hills, AUD $18

Youthful and bright with excellent fruit clarity. Light-to-medium weight with gentle spice and primary red fruit. A fragrant, light, early drinking style with lovely red cherry and cranberry flavours and faint underlying savouriness. Good straight from the bottle but even better with air. Excellent value.
