So much fun in a bottle here with this light red field blend. Raspberries and liquorice on the nose, which follow through to the juicy red-fruit palate, complemented with a savoury smoked charcuterie character. Serve it slightly chilled if you like.
An authentic field blend, from the same vineyard and with grapes picked on the dame day. The fruit journeys from field to bottle together. Just buy it and try it, you will love it.
