Why Big Red Diary?

Bargain alert!!! Medium-plus cherry red colour. The nose is a forward and interesting fruit mix that is very dark red, but not quite black, something slightly herbal in the background. The palate is big, sweet forward red-shaded fruit. There’s very good freshness and a long, acidity inspired finish. The tannins are well hidden too. This was very ripe, but not over-ripe and finished way too fast. This would be a fabulous quality house wine.

Medium ruby with a bright cherry red rim. The nose is a tasty high toned red cherry and raspberry affair. The palate shows surprisingly intense red fruit, good fat and well mannered slightly drying tannins. The fat gives the impression that (maybe) the acidity is a little low, but this was perfect with Christmas dinner. A real find!
