This is a superb value vegan wine which has sen some old oak just to soften the tannins. It is an easy drinking wine with notes of autumn fruits, red berries a hint of spice and lovely soft finish. A great summer red, chill slightly and enjoy with fish or drink at room temperature with a curry or Thai.
