Intense dark red with some magenta hues, hinting at the ripeness and richness of the fruit.
Bouquet
The aroma is rich with mulberry and Satsuma plum characters, complemented by French oak spiciness.

The aromas of mulberry and Satsuma plums follow beautifully on to the palate. Maturation in French oak has added a spicy edge to the ripe fruit, adding cinnamon, nutmeg and all-spice complexity.
