INFORMATION OF INTEREST Clos Erasmus 2016
Colour: Clean and bright Garnet color with certain violet reflections, an extremely vivid wine is perceived. Very nice to look at.
Aroma: It came with a lot of complexity and intensity, where it expresses with sublime elegance aromas of ripe black cherries and plums. All accompanied with a really lovely after balsamic background in which licorice and touches of clove (spice) predominate along with mineral notes.
Taste: It enters the mouth seducing the most demanding palates. Soft tannins, but with a strength that makes it a perfectly balanced wine, very good acidity where the notes of ripe fruit appear. Step by mouth long and fantastically persistent.
