Time of release
In every sense a classic Georgia’s, from its obvious colour depth through to its lingering full finish. Deep crimson red, with rich ripe aromas of red berries and blackcurrant with eucalyptus/minty hints. Full palate with peppery spiciness balancing the natural acidity with noble tannins. Drink during the next decade, maybe more.
