Medium intensity in terms of colour here, classic ruby-red, rather youthful. Sweet nose of jammed strawberries, red fruit, some cherry, with a mild spiciness. No evident oak. The palate has a nice charm here, with a lot of sweet fruit. Good juiciness and roundness. It is a bit more than medium weight but in terms of texture, quite loose and polished already. Underlined by a quite vital freshness. Giving a lift to that sensation of sweet fruit. So it doesn’t really taste jammy but it is rather the nose that gives the sensation of comfiture. Juicy, fresh with a fine drinkability. Slight spiciness on the finish. Quite delicious already now but it should continue to develop over the coming five, six, seven years.

Tasted by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
