This dry but fruity red wine, scented with red cherries, blackcurrant and liquorice, is round and juicy and packed with ripe soft dark summer berries.
"This meaty crowd-pleaser is actually vegetarian. It bursts with blackcurrant. Set to be a summer staple."
Damian Barr, Sunday Times , 9th August 2015
