Allegiance Unity Tumba Chard

Pale lemon hue. Plenty of rich oak influences melding neatly with the bright fruit: Citrusy lemon curd, warm cinnamon spice, citrus florals, easy toasty oak, shaved ginger and hint of cashew cream. Richness of fruit balanced with regional cut and thrust.  Drying phenolics induce a mouth watering close. Well made to show case depth of fruit and deft of winemaking.

RRP: $60
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
