Cassis | Blackberry | Cigar Box
“I would give you my soul in a blackberry pie; and a knife to cut it with” – Dorothy Dunnett
As we head to the vineyards with our shiny new buckets to put the juicy berries in; we dream of the perfect blackberry pie that will be made from the fruit that we pick. Wafts of fresh baked pastry; macerated blackberry flavours and the texture of clotted cream… now that’s our Blackberry Patch!
Exuberant Cassis, dark plum and obviously Blackberry fruits aligning with enveloping, refined-yet-generous Cigar Box tannins.
This is accented with the perfumed cedary notes derived from the oak our wine is matured in. The result; a wine with elegance and poise.
