|Wine||A blend of Syrah, Sangiovese and Cabernet. A very pale salmon pink in colour. Perfumed aromas of strawberry and blood orange with savoury notes of fennel frond and thyme. Full fruitiness in the mid palate with notes of cranberries and spice, combine with a long, dry mineral drive. Savoury and crisp to finish. Drink chilled in the backyard with your mates. Or on the beach with your feet in the water. Or whenever!|
|Tasting Note||Cranberry - Spice - Dry|
