Rivuletwines-PN21

Bright garnet to ruby in colour. Packing plenty of pure Pinosity. Crackling spice from the whole bunch influence, with deep cherry and raspberry, sweet cedary oak hinting at vanilla and crushed leaf. Silky and elegant. Gossamer tannins punctuated with bright acidity. Balanced, fine and very under priced.

RRP: $38
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 19/20 (95/100)
