I don’t know about you but I like it when it easy to pick a wine knowing that it is reliable, safe and will be good. This is one of those types of wines.
I have to admit when I poured it I thought I must’ve picked up a younger version of this wine. It was so bright, clear and fresh and the aromas that presented themselves deceived me into thinking this way. Don’t get me wrong, I knew it was only two years old.
This is going to sound weird but, apart from the dark berries, and other berry things going on, there was a flavour that was like bitter cherries but a sweetness too. This was the flavour that intrigued me no end because it added such a different dimension to the wine, but a good one.
We drank this with Greek food (including lamb of course) and in the company of great friends and it went down a treat.
