Crisp and refreshing with notes of pink grapefruit and lemon. Ideal as an aperitif, or with shellfish.

Slightly deeper in colour than is strictly fashionable but with enough summer berry fruit to cope with sizzling spiced prawns or cedar-planked salmon.

No oak in this one, just pure unadulterated blackberries, black cherries and smooth, supple tannins.  Team with steak and sausages.
