Sweetish, Spicy, Cedary, Apple
|TASTING NOTE: Such a vibrant colour in the glass! Plenty of fragrance and flavour, too, with ripe strawberry, maraschino cherry and red pepper jelly. Tangy acidity keeps things lively on the finish. Chill and sip with antipasto and mild cheeses, or a focaccia sandwich with grilled bell peppers, zucchini and havarti. (Vintages panel, March 2018)
