Clear and firm aroma of cherries and dark berries, delicate herbal and floral notes with just a hint of bacon and pepper. An elegant, quite cool style, slightly acidic on the palate but bursting with fruity flavours and some salt in the background, with a touch of paprika and black olives. Youthful, fine-grained tannins and an excellent finish with a bite, this wine will only get better with age.
Food Pairing Recommendation
The wines acidity makes it the perfect drink to go alongside heavier, heartier dishes like steak, sausages and BBQ meats. It also cuts beautifully through spicier dishes, making it the ideal pairing for hot Asian curries like a vindaloo or even Sichuan chicken.
Serving temperature: 14-16°C
