Award Platinum: Best Brazilian Red over £15
*points score is representative of platinum award threshold
Complex wine, with a plethora of aromas: plum, cherry, herbs, graphite, cedar, alongside charcoaly, toasty nuances from wood and a hint of leather from the age. Smart, stylish and savoury palate with a pleasant texture and excellent tension and vibrancy. It has freshness, earthiness and finesse, a fabulous expression of Merlot.
