Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, with a neck label of 2019-2020, and a best before date of 28th January 2030. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very nice orangey pink colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a ring around the glass, while leaving only some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Blackberries, oak, light funk and tangy spritzy lemon zest.
Taste: Lightly sour, blackberries, blackcurrant, oak, vanilla, lemon yoghurt, light funk, lemon zest.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Really easy and enjoyable to drink. Aroma and flavours were smooth and light but extremely balanced, with good fruit, strong oak and light funk.
