Intro: A 375ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 12th September 2021. Poured into a red wine glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark copper colour with a very thin off white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, basil, red berries, oak, with notes of vinegar.
Taste: Sweet, a touch sour, basil, red berries, with a touch of oak and balsamic vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The basil is strong and obvious, but each sip makes me think of pesto, which while not bad, was a little too savoury for me.
