Winery : Akarua

Michele's notes: Brilliant in the glass but deeply hued. Enveloping aromas of rich black fruits, lifted by violet, hint of allspice and dark chocolate. It is an enticing introduction to the sweep of delicious fruit across the palate. Harmony and balance are hallmarks; the wine is neither heavy nor light. Refreshing and well-integrated acid right at the end, with liquorice and fine, dry tannins.
