The wine is dark velvety red in colour. The nose is all blackberries, sweet spice and marmalade. On the palate: blackberries, chocolate and cloves are balanced with cumquat acid. Vanilla on the finish - although this is unoaked, it’s deliciously dry with subtle tannins. I can see why this grape is traditionally used to make port, it’s a bit of a flavour bomb.
