At first impression of the Aidan, a dark, almost opaque wine which meets the senses with a rich bouquet of ripe, dark fruit – true to its modern approach. With another swirl, beyond the plush aromas of black cherries you will find yourself truly intrigued by what seems to be a soft lace of violet and lavender, fittingly rounded by the Syrah-derived white pepper and plum. From this intriguing nose this complex wine follows through with huge flavour concentration onto the palate. This full-bodied wine presents bold, yet polished, palate-gripping tannins that unwind into a long, persistent and well defined peppery finish. The balance of rich texture and the integrated minerality gives this bold wine vibrancy, making it the perfect fit for Aidan.
