Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Refined and elegant on the nose with soft, red cherry fruit, blackberries, violets and summer pudding aromas.
Palate The palate is light-medium bodied with well rounded and balanced tannins and good acidity. Equally as elegant as it is on the nose, with flavours of red cherries, stewed plums, hedgerow fruits and some gentle spiced notes of pepper, and nutmeg.
Colour Ruby red with a garnet rim, showing a little age

Restaurant Magazine 5 Stars ‘Calestaia, the winery’s top wine, is exceptional: elegantly flavoured and very well balanced; a complex, full bodied, supple wine that is crisp and long on the palate with light oakiness on the finish. Now nearing its best, it tastes of plum jam, toffee, red liquorice, toast, and spicy oak.’
