2018 Limited Release Austral Red Wine

“The best vintages produce complex wines and 2018 was exceptional-especially for Rhone-style varieties. The 2018 Austral is fresh and wild with fascinating notes of green peppercorns, rhubard and raspberry tea. The midpalate is broad with ample ripe fruit. Sweet spice and currant notes extend the finish.”
