This wine is complex and exuberant on the nose, with fresh aromas of blueberries, menthol and eucalyptus with hints of orange blossom. Plenty of intensity and vinosity on the palate, with full flavours of wild berries embraced in a mineral grip. A combination of purity of fruit and freshness of style, representing an excellent example of Gricha’s unique identity.
