(2015) We don't often see the great red grape of the Loire Valley and Right Bank Bordeaux appearing as a stand-alone variety on New World wines. In this instance it has been fashioned into a juicy, up-front and easy-drinking red, this has a lightly bubblegummy, fresh and cherry-infused nose, with a little grass and pepper quality. In the mouth there's enough tannin to give it some structure, plenty of cherry-bright fruit, and a nicely balanced finish. Highly gluggable, and great with burgers or a bowl of chilli.
