Fruity and well-rounded
If you are looking for a fun and pleasurable wine, stop your way here because you just found it! This dark garnet-colored wine will enchant you with its fragrances of redcurrant and wild strawberry mixed with black pepper. Its attack is all about suppleness and fruitiness with smooth tannins with no bitterness. You will appreciate its long finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
