A big thank you to the team at Mount Avoca for this beautiful sample.
I literally savoured every drop while snuggled up in bed with Mr Spittoon and as you can see in the picture, our two cats. Haha the romance!

What it tastes like
It’s a garnet brick colour in the glass and oh my it is super aromatic. As soon as Mr Spittoon poured the wine about a metre away from me I could smell it! Think juicy blueberries, blackberries, milk chocolate and some earthiness. in the mouth it’s full bodied and rich, yet has supple tannins and a wonderfully long finish. There’s juicy berry fruit and some cocoa dusted cherries in there. Ahh I can’t do justice to describing this wine. It’s pure deliciousness.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
