Rust en Vrede Estate Tinta Barocca 1999

Purple reflections, youthful vibrance, rich colour. Violets, crushed fruits (strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant) and notes of spice. On the palate it is succulent, fruit driven, spicy and floral underlined by a good alcohol, acidity ratio and sweetish overtones.
