Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled in August 2020, with a best before date of bottled date + 5 years. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy pinkish orange colour with an almost two fingered fluffy white head that had excellent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Berries, blackberry, farmhouse, dried sweat, funky, floral, lime.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, blackberry, funky, farmhouse, damp wood, with a splash of lime on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Slight creaminess, medium bodied, with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable and easy to drink as the fruit and funk were balanced.
