The best description: “ A prayer turned into wine”. Wine of the Saint Hill, perfuses the glass with light. Ripe, spicy, fruity nose – primarily mulberry and cranberry – with notes of fresh strawberry jam. Uniquely unusual, astonishingly balanced structure. Soft, very long, vibrant acids. Plenty of fruits, liquorice, herbals on the palate combined with the inevitable chalky and soil character. Long, nearly never ending finish. Everlasting unforgettable experience.
