An elegant and round red wine, full-bodied with high acidity and well-integrated tannins. Deep and luscious nose, dark forest fruits and chocolate show dominance, with earthy and mineral tones just in the background. Flavours of vanilla, sweet spice and cedar from the oak ageing all coming through. The dark fruits and chocolate carry directly to the palate, with an addition of red fruit.
The depth and complexity of this wine lend themselves perfectly to roast or BBQ meats, especially lamb or beef. While the oak and dark fruits would pair beautifully with anything cooked over fire.
