Comes in a 750 ml screw-top bottle, with moderate sediment. Made with the addition of crab apples.
Copper-coloured, with an aroma of plummy fruit, edged with a little oak.
Sharp and astringent, with a little resin, the flavour is of rich, ripe fruit, carrying plum and a little fig, becoming tannic and woody in the finish.
Complex and characterful, though the crab apple astringency may not be to many people's taste. I think this might go well as an evening drink with a rich fruit cake.
