But, what does it taste like?
The Gringo breaks rank and shows his feminine side. Fresh and aromatic, with gentle paw paw, pink musk and strawberry flavours ahead of a light and creamy palate.
A wine of precision and delight, walking a tightrope between tannin grip and juicy succulence.
"A Rosé amongst thorns."
