Tasting Notes

Unmistakeable for the cultivars that introduce such power, this Bordeaux blend is as provocative as delicious, albeit time will still relinquish a more velvety and approachable character. 


Dark Red, plum coloured Bordeaux blend that is clean and medium opaque in appearance.


Bold and enticing. This wine has beautiful fruit aromas made of an amalgamation of plums and cassis. Mosi 2021 has a complex of liquorice, cigar box and smokiness with hints of pencil shavings.


The palate does not match what is smelt on the nose. Mosi 2021 is sharp, acidic and young with juicy, red fruits and vanilla. This is a medium bodied wine with sightly rough tannins that will be even more beautiful once the acidity has settled over time.
