Wine Tasting Notes

Point Leo Road

2008 Point Leo Road Lagrein
Region: Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

Point Leo Road's 2008 vintage is a rich, medium bodied, dry wine with blackberries, dark plums and a hint of fennel with subtle, toasted oak. It has well structured tannins with lingering savoury and spice notes. It is a dark cherry- red colour with a crimson hue and shows good viscosity.
