Clear, light burgundy red.
Aromatic fresh punnet of raspberries with strong botanical aromas of pine, lavender, camphor and sage.
Sweet, slightly syrupy palate with animated raspberry juice backed and made more complex by subtle botanical notes. Perhaps a touch too much on the sweet side for dry palates.
Thyme influenced raspberry finish with lingering pine and lavender.
