The allure of this variety is its paradoxical qualities. It is transparent, light and delicate while at the same time rich and complex. Aromas of raspberry and clove spice followed by flavours of cherry with light notes of tobacco and oak.
This estate grown wine comes from vineyards that were shovel planted by the Speck Brothers in 1984. Dry and fuller bodied with more intense acidity. Apple, citrus and spice on the palate. Attractive in its youth this wine will develop secondary characteristics and improve with 3 to 8 years cellaring.
