Yes, together! Plain, simple and nice to look at. A smooth white label with black font announcing the brand and the wine. It also advises “Blackcurrant and dark berry fruit flavours with herbaceous character.”
No airs and graces, just a label telling you the very basic information you require. How terribly British!
I don’t know what to expect. I’m nervous.
There you go.
The nose wasn’t terrible, a little spicy and warm. Maybe a touch sweet. Nothing too offensive. The taste, well, bitter doesn’t even come close. It’s blackcurrant heavy, anything else going on in there is completely hidden by the tartness.
When giving my friends a quick debrief, the only thing I could liken it too was pretty graphic and most unpleasant so I’m going to leave it at VERY acidic. I dont know if this is a bad bottle or this is what it’s meant to be like but I’m afraid I’m not a fan.
I did genuinely hope this would be a great wine (especially considering the price) and I could champion English wine, but not in this instance.
You KNOW I can drink pretty much anything but I have finally met my match!
