TASTING NOTE

red wine

Havelter Rood 2018

Our rating

7 /10
The wine has an extensive aroma palate with scents of blackberry, prunes, rosemary, pepper, eucalyptus and bay leaves. The bouquet of the wine however promises more, and is more comprehensive, than the taste delivers. The wine has no great complexity in its taste and a somewhat short finish. Nevertheless, this is a nice and well-balanced glass of red wine.
