Winery/Brand: Happs


Colour: A great colour, dark red with a red purple hue – a clear indication the wine has escaped the harmful effects of oxidation despite the absence of the antioxidant sulphur dioxide.
Bouquet: Raspberry, cherry, choc mint, dried herbs and dark fruit with hints of forest floor, cedar and violets.
Palate:A medium-full bodied wine with intense cherry, plum skin, liquorice and raspberry with notes of Dr Pepper and green strawberry. The tannins are soft though slightly sinewy and the finish savoury and persistent.
