Attractive aromas abound with ripe black and red fruits to the fore with hints of spice, chocolate and mint. The palate is soft, rich and juicy with intense berry, plum and chocolate flavours. Fine, ripe tannins and balanced acid texture and length.
Perhaps a little more serious wine than the name suggests. While providing affordable every day drinking, this wine definitely delivers plenty on the quality front.
