Winery/Brand: Happs


Colour: Intensely purple – a clear indication the wine has escaped the harmful effects of oxidation despite the absence of the antioxidant sulphur dioxide.
Nose: Fresh and clean with cherry, strawberry and dark fruit characters combined with some attractive charry oak.
Palate: Young and fresh with intense berry fruit flavours and savoury confectionary notes. The oak is apparent but the fruit easily matches it. A testament to careful winemaking.
