Grenache Noir, Donkiesbaai

A lively combination of red cherries and black currant jump out of the glass. A floral aroma of lavender overlays notes of flint and iron. The fruit profile develops into blueberries on the palate with sour red cherry notes adding to the tangy acidity. Cedar spice lends some savoury complexity to this medium bodied wine, with light yet firm tannins. Vibrant and fresh, with a long sour cherry finish.
