A medium-bodied red wine cuvée with a magical, deep ruby red colour and a velvety fruity aroma. A delicate fragrance of cherry, plum and dark chocolate, with the addition of roasted notes, cloves and eastern spices on the palate. It finishes with a really long, elegant and silky-smooth aftertaste. This is a captivating and dignified vintage that will only get better with time, but it is special already.
