EW Tasting Notes:
Ooof! Where do we begin?! This juicy tutti frutti is an absolute show stopper. It's bright, crisp and one very easy drinking light red. Framed by some grippy tannins, the wine is really harmonious on the palate and keeps you wanting just a little bit more... Definitely drink this one chilled. It's hard to put it in a category: is it an orange? Is it a heavy rose? Whatever it is, it is simply divine and what we want to be drinking right now.
