The wine is super fragrant, with aromas of sweet spice, blackberry and pepper. The palate is bright and expressive with a burst of mouth-filling ripe berry flavours. Textbook varietal characters of cherry cola and smoked spice also flood the palate before supple tannins and subtle oak provide definition to the impressively long finish. Pair with meat-based paella with plenty of smoked paprika. 14% abv.
