It starts with cranberries, sweet tobacco, basil and sour cherries. Driven by acidity, there’s great tension in this wine. High-toned red apple skins, rose petals. Raw almonds are here too. All pinned down by fine-grained chalky tannins. More leafy spice evolve in the glass. There’s lovely red fruit here but altogether it’s more of a savoury style. This is your alternative go-to, Pinot and Nebbiolo drinkers. It’s an impressive Hunter Barbera.
