Strange after-taste

I know a lot of people liked this wine but personally I found the strange after-taste really off-putting. It reminded me of the taste of perfume, if you've ever had the misfortune to accidentally taste it. I had to pour it down the sink.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Unusual and rather special

Probably a little pricey for the style of wine but it is an interesting red and good to drink lightly chilled.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

perfect for the summer!

This wine is light fruity, and my husband and i love to chill it in the fridge and drink with a light meal, it is a perfect red for the summer!

Rating: 2 star out of 5


Pleasantly savoury aroma of blackcurrant and fallen leaves, but tannins are too green and the effect on the palate is mouth-puckeringly sour.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


I find this a really lovely bottle of red.
