Softly textured and lively. There’s no oak, just loads of perfumed berry and cherry fruit. The Merlot brings roundness and softness to the palate and the spicy Syrah adds body to the wine. Smooth with savoury blackberry and blueberry fruit. A great-value red that would be an ideal partner to red meat, charcuterie, chicken and cheese, or indeed for any occasion.
