Julien’s pop up at Mallow. Beautiful aromatic nose. Cloudy purple. Ripe fruits. Subtle finesse. Long finish.
[Winemaker’s notes:] “Bright red in appearance. Ripe fruit aromas with a tinge of raisins. Rather beguiling. On the palate it delivers spades of vibrant fresh fruit. Very lively. Although it is still rather understated right now, it already displays good acidity and a charming airiness, which means you can enjoy it right away too. The wine expresses the contrasting weather between August and September.”
