A unique bottle shape resembling an artillery shell, this wine promises fireworks. It has a slightly restrained aroma, but the palate opens up to reveal strawberry jam, cranberry and blackberry accompanied by some herbal complexity and savoury spice. Aged in French oak for 12 months, this is a lovely alternative to Bordeaux.
