This is the 2020 vintage (remembering they harvest early in NZ) seems like some CM (carbonic maceration ) big black cherry fruit with some subtle spice and earth.

Some fun post-work bottles with a dear friend, in the wine trades. No formal notes.

Beautiful pale red cherry color. Slightly green and peppery on the nose. Velvety and light on palate.

Bright, juicy, and dangerously easy-drinking.

Juicy, crunchy red fruits like strawberries 🍓 and bright cherries. 🍒 Supporting notes of violets, red licorice, cinnamon, and an herbal almost menthol-like quality. 🌱 High acidity and med- tannins. Best with a chill on a hot day!

Fun! Fab value, too! Bright, juicy and resolutely fresh with blackberries and mulberries. Sips nicely alone or with meats dishes incorporating figs or other dark fruits.
