Heady aromas of spice and cedar introduce a spice- and tang-laden stream of deftly balanced, sustainably farmed Zin. It bathes the palate with luscious flavours of black cherry, dried currant and plum jam adorned with moderating tang. It’s mid-full weight and structured with good mouthfeel and persistent purity of fruit from cork pop to the very last drop of the dry, delectable finish. (Vic Harradine)
