TASTING NOTE

red wine

De Linie Rood 2019

Our rating

7 /10
The wine has a bit of a green character. We taste red fruits and herbaceuous flavours like liquorice, rosemary and blackcurrent and pronounced smokey flavours of oak. We recommend decanting the wine, this will certainly improve the taste. After being opened for some time, the wine still has green notes of bitterness and green pepper but the oaky flavours are less pronounced. It appears that the grapes have been picked too green and have not developed full maturity.
