Medium-ruby clear color; bright cherries and raspberries, sweet floral notes, minerals, and some unusual forest-meaty whiffs on the nose; on the palate it is fruity with high acids and soft tannins, and with a spicy savouriness toward the end. A nicely balanced and interesting Central Otago PN.

Very light before dinner. In lieu of white. Fruity but not sweet

Not very balanced, a lot of fruit but not much else. Easy to drink, lacks complexity.

Nicely tuned mushy red berries with perhaps a bit too sharp boozy bite of alcohol.
