Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, vintage 2022, with a best before date of 2nd October 2042. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy purplish red colour, with a thin white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, blackcurrant, Ribena, green vines, with a touch of apple peel.
Taste: Much like the aroma, sour, tart, fruity, blackcurrant, Ribena, notes of apple peel and a touch of acidity.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft to no carbonation.
Overall: Cassis is front and centre as it should be. Was hoping for more complexity though, and my preference would have been to have at least some carbonation.
