"This Carignan is gorgeous on the nose, raspberry and white pepper join a plethora of red fruit: pomegranate, cranberry, cherry – all sliding into a silky smooth, sappy palate. Light in alcohol and weight, it is sort of a South African Trousseau look-alike – bright, attractive fruity and savoury at the same time this is a wine that quenches thirst! A beauty." – Andrew Guard, importer
