This cup profile is very sweet and with dominant berry characteristics that reminds us of a fresh fruit salad. There's a winey complexity that is elegant, clean and very well composed. This heirloom varietal came from samples collected growing wild from the Gori Gesha forest in the Illubabor region of Ethiopia.
