Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'There's a nice touch of oak on the nose here, with the fruit taking over on the palate, but still keeping that spice, and with the tannins slowing coming in.' Timothy Connor, Heddon Street Kitchen. 'Quite pronounced, with spice notes and fruits all well-balanced.' Aurore Anguenot, Aviary.
