This is an elegant yet powerful medium-bodied dry red wine, with a complex aroma of red berries, rosehip and raspberry. The palate is characterised by the same intense fruitiness, accompanied by a gentle warmth from the alcohol and rounded out by a dynamic acidity and tight structure that make this a formidable vintage.
Food Pairing Recommendation
It goes very well with duck dishes like a crispy Peking duck or duck with plum sauce. You can also serve it alongside roast lamb prepared with rosemary, or with aged ham for a memorable experience.
