|Wine||Complex nose is full of blackcurrant and blackberry, pencil case and tobacco leaf. On the palate, these flavours follow with black fruit, fine cigar box, and pencil shavings. Still refreshing, with a nice line of acidity, this is a wine of substance and a long future. (Vegan-friendly)|
|Tasting Note||Brambles - Tobacco Leaf - Complex|
