This well balanced wine presents with aromas of strawberries, raspberries, dried currants, honey, and caramelized sugars. Flavors of red fruits and overtones reminiscent of toasted marshmallows linger on the palate with honeyed undertones. Soft tannins and mild acidity blend well with a slight sweetness. The aftertaste is mild, honey and fruit linger pleasantly on the back palate while oak and vanilla fade away. Best served chilled and neat.
The grapes were pressed after harvest for a pink wine and honey was immediately added. Medium toast Hungarian oak was used for balance. Aged one year, this is ready to drink or could age further.
