SP68 is a road but also a young wine. Fresh and pleasant, with a delicate taste that brings with it the flavor of the sun and the freshness of this land.
In the mouth the initial attack of fruit is awash with wild cherry sheathed in tobacco leaf with supporting fruit flavours of dark plum and blackberry. A very pretty wine on the palate with violet-like floral flicks across the leather and spice backdrop with hints of roasted meats, citrus rind and scattered herbs. It’s delicious and lively with a nice, lingering finish set upon a plinth of ripe, fine grained gravelly tannins. It doesn’t mind a bit of chilling down, it tightens up a little and is a joy to drink.
