Tasting notes


One to be tucked away in the part of the wine rack marked 'party wines', this is, pure and simply, all about the fruit. A combination of red and dark forest fruits, it's whistle clean, upfront and fresh, with the odd hint of toffee showing itself on the mid-palate. £7.49 (15 points)
