France, Beaujolais 12.5% Cork $21.95
Vivid cherries, raspberry jubes, loads of purple florals and a pleasant suggestion of rubber pong on the nose. It’s light and crunchy with plenty of firm, stalky tannin, hints of earth, stony minerality and some spice (mostly black pepper). Made for casual enjoyment and food but delivering a bit more than that, should you wish to dwell on it. Handles a light chill rather well too.
A great option to have at the end of Summer and heading into Autumn. Consumed with a pepper steak pie, it worked a treat.
