WSET style tasting note

Nose – clean on the nose, with a medium (+) intensity, developing, with opening floral nuances of dried rose and rich tea rose, warm red plum juice and violet, savoury with a hint of nuttiness – almond.

Palate – a dry wine, with medium (+) balancing acidity, medium (+) tannin, medium (+) alcohol and a medium body, with medium (+) intensity flavours of black fruit with a savoury note, black berry, black cherry, and a hint of prune and dried fig.  A medium (+) clean finish.

Quality – a good quality wine, balanced acidity to alcohol-wise, levels of which are in harmony with flavour intensity; a good level of flavour concentration; the wine  has moderate complexity which is developing with some tertiary notes starting to show. A food wine.
