pikes-the-red-mullet-07My Tasting Notes -

Nose: raspberry, blueberry and hints of cocoa

Taste: raspberry, blackberry, red currant, plum and cherry

Mouthfeel: medium to full body, slightly spicy with great acid

Finish: long, with great structure

The Pikes Red Mullet is an interesting blend that is made to be an every day red wine suitable for a variety of foods. It is definitely that, and has an interesting contrast on the nose and palate of red and dark fruit notes. The kicker is definitely the acidity, great amounts of it that give this fruit driven wine some excellent structure.

Cheers!
