SAM KIM - WINE ORBIT
Wonderfully ripe and inviting, the wine shows blackberry, blueberry jam, violet, hazelnut and mixed spice aromas on the nose, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is succulent and supple. It is generously expressed and fabulously approachable, making it immensely appealing. AU$32.00. www.allsaintswine.com.au.
