Olivia Brion was a 19th century French-Anglo suffragette, athlete and bicycle fiend, who out-raced a train and revealed saucy correspondence from great men of the age. The wine is an homage to her and mixes vibrant, lush red fruit with an earthier mix of mushroom and tea, all wrapped in velveteen tannins.
