Rich and intense aroma of sweet spices, menthol, apricot jam and tropical fruit. A round and creamy body, with dynamic acidity, moderate alcohol and palpable tannins. A strong mineral balance on the palate, with citrus fruit and notes of apricot. A long finish with hints of honey.
Food Pairing Recommendation
This bold wine goes very well with equally bold dishes. Pair it with spicier curries like a madras or a vindaloo, or alternatively serve it alongside Moroccan or Ethiopian dishes like a rich tagine or beef stew with injera.
