The Winemaker

'I have loved watching Travis' pursuit of his vinous highs, and a shared love for certain styles of wines has kept the interest alive for many years. Travis Tausend puts his heart and soul into his wines with the emotion, intuition and energy that ensures his wines will always be different. He is the very definition of a small-batch winemaker, and the industry is better for it.'

The Wine

An Italian blend dominated by juicy, black fruit, big berry compote, savoury leather and florals on the nose with a medium­ bodied, slippery, full-flavoured palate with bright acidity. The tannins are fine and drying, making this a very moreish wine. Muffuletta sandwich.
