Just 20 days of maceration for this wine, with 10 months of élevage in barrels (but not new) to guard the bright fruit character. Deep ruby-pink colour, the nose is incredibly attractive, recalling freshly picked red cherries. This is full bodied to start, with good flesh, intense fruit flavours and bouncy freshness. There is good structure, without being massive, fine texture and a complete finish. Drink this as soon as shipped – as you might a youthful Pinot Noir – through to 2022.
