This stunning wine offers a beautiful perfume packed with flowers, spice box, wild cherries, kirsch, underbrush, and red plums. Soft, silky, fresh, clean and pure, with spicy top notes that fit perfectly with all those sweet raspberries and kirsch notes, the wine, aged in demi-muid is going to be impossible to find as only 800 bottles were produced.
