Nice wine. Simple but pleasing. Strawberry fruit meets meaty spice and earth. Good bbq wine.

This is a light but jammy red blend, tasting of strawberry and rhubarb. It is slightly tart on the tongue but still well balanced.

A bit of a lottery as the bottle tells you nothing about the wine but I loved it, it's perfect for my tastes! From Naked Wines.

Cherry nose with smooth finish. Not overly dry. Mild. Would buy again.

Sharp in the nose. Currants? Tart yet refreshing.

Very different to what I usually have but very enjoyable and a nice change. Smooth and fruity with a good finish.

The tannins are there, but not overpowering. Tart, dry, and perfunctory. Reminds me of sand and sunshine.
