Hastwell & Lightfoot, Fat n’ Skinny, The Red Fury, Tempranillo, Garnacha, McLaren Vale, 2018

Carries a slightly confectionery red appearance. Sweet and easy red fruit nose. Plenty of jubey raspberry, dark cherry, liquorice with some sweaty meaty funk  and sweet vanilla tinged oak. Hits the intent of light hearted, easy drinking with a medium amount of up front dark red fruits, a good smear of medium chunky tannin and then a short-ish finish. A little chill probably wouldn’t hurt either.
