Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Aromas of red fruit, herbs, garrigue
Palate raspberry flavours with eucalyptus leaves and dry dark plums. Dense, with a powerful structure, but with the typical balance and elegance of Gaivosa. Great complexity and facing many good years ahead.
