I am not a wine "connoisseur" but i do love a very nice, easy to drink drop which this is. Absolutely lovely wine that I would highly recommend. Also, the company is second to none to deal with and are great to get recommendations for different wines.
Pliant and delicious.
Centurion vines hand-picked and fully destemmed to yield a dense grenache with real-yes you read it correctly in this age of lolly water-tannins. Plied with used American and French oak, this builds across the mouth nicely, scattering dark berry flavours, orange rind scents, cranberry and briar in its wake. Pliant, fibrous tannins. Savoury and delicious.
A vibrant display of fresh red cherry, raspberry and red current fruits with a plush savory tannin structure and soft acid finish giving elegance to the wine.
