He’s turned that material into a drink that could be mistaken for one from the Dundee Hills with its high-toned red fruit profile. Scents akin to pie cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and sizzling bacon push into an elegant fluid of strawberry/rhubarb compote and baked cherry pie. There’s abundant acidity, reduced tannin and low alcohol.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 150 cases
