Clear (but so thick almost opaque), deep maroon red.
Intense fresh blackcurrant and blackcurrant jam with distinctive “green” freshly cut plant stem smell.
Very thick mouthfeel but with high berry tartness cutting through and balancing sugary richness – perfectly balanced with intense blackberry flavour.
Long, tongue coating blackberry jam finish with continuing balancing acidity.
A beautifully balanced, rich and intensely flavoured crème de cassis.
Closure: Synthetic stopper
