Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'A rich and dense nose with black tea, chocolate raisins, Black Forest Gateau and salted caramel, with a long finish.' Nigel Lister, St. Swithins Wine Shippers. 'Predominant vanilla followed by cinnamon, and an overall good body, with length, balance and intensity. This is a complex wine with good structure and a good finish, too.'
