The lovely labelling on this bottle drew me in. Beautiful package, along with the words “small parcels” & “handcrafted” on the label added to my intrigue. Had to buy and try.
Youthful bright and deep purple on the eye.
On the palate, its best described as a juicy, cuddly red wine. Yes, there’s juicy, ripe fruits with some spice and chinotto overtones. But the flavour stays right at the front of the palate. Seems lacking in structure and acid that makes it a touch hard going after a glass. Doubt this has the legs to age. Hint of apricot skins indicate there might be some viognier in it.
Unfortunately, the visual enticement did not translate into an enjoyable wine for me.
