Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘Running Duck’, Stellar Organics
A particularly exciting and long-awaited addition to the no added sulphur range. The wine is a deepish purple tinged red. On the nose there are appealing berry and savoury characters whilst the mouth is packed with rich, robust fruit.
The style is vigorous, almost rustic, with ripe cherries, blackcurrants and green pepper predominant.
The tannins are gentle but supportive and the outcome entirely satisfactory.
