"They used to sell a lot of grapes to Wynns. This is a blend that the winemaker at Majella always wanted to make.
Bright ruby with pillar-box-red notes. Really very beautiful integration and ripeness.
Fills all corners of the palate, with some but not excessive mintiness.
Quite a refined texture. Lovely polished tannins. Not fat but very impressive."
