Regional Information
Fruit was carefully selected from various regions to balance style & flavour profile of the wine. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates & generally low rainfall making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental resulting in long sunny days & noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural & winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths.
Current Vintage
2018
Vinification Details
The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed to varying sizes & styles of red fermenters where the fruit was fermented on oak at cooler temperatures of 18 - 22oC for 5 - 7 days. Fermenting at cooler temperatures allows the fruit flavours to be nurtured and enables retention of varietal characteristics. Post fermentation the majority of the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of the wine transferred onto French & American Oak.

I'm in the minority

Not over keen on this wine myself. Find it too sweet and not an easily drinkable wine

I purchased this based on the previous reviews and I wasnt disappointed. In fact this is my new favourite wine. It is smooth with a lovely flavour and very drinkable- already in my basket again this week - delicious.

Delicious and very easy to drink.

Quite sweet but full of flavour and really smooth. Easy to drink. Nice by itself or with a variety of food. Have ordered this every week since I discovered it. Delicious.

Lovely and approachable

This is the number 1 red wine on Amazon.co.uk. And for a reason. It is lovely. I had a load of friends over and they all went home and ordered it. Not too dry, very fruit forward with flavours of cherry. Very nice! Fav wine.

Favourite red

Yes, this is on the sweet side but that is suggested by the tasting notes (cherry and plum). Due to the sweetness, it is at its best served cool or slightly chilled. Very drinkable and lacks the sandpaper mouth effect from heavier reds
