Intro: A 375ml bottle, 2017 vintage, poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear dark ruby red colour with a thin pinkish head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing.
Aroma: Light tartness, red wine grapes, vinous, funky, hay, oak, with notes of mixed berry sweetness.
Taste: Light sour and tartness, vinous, red wine grapes, light funk, oak, with notes of cherry and mixed berries.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Nice complex aroma and flavours. It was more vinous than expected, but the aroma especially was really good and everything was just really balanced.
