Description

  • Rich, dark berries
  • Violets
  • Smoke & black pepper
  • Subtle oak

"This is a gorgeous rendition of the variety; the complex bouquet shows blackberry, cranberry, toasted almond and cake spice characters. It is equally satisfying on the palate with succulent fruit intensity and fleshy mouthfeel, classically structured by chalky tannins. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2019

A bright, deep purple in the glass. On the nose the wine delivers powerful aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violet and spices that follow on the palate along with a smoky candied touch and black peppery background from its brief ageing in oak. A long and silky after taste. 

Food Pairing: Pair with steak, pork and lamb. Rich in tomato sauce dishes, vegetables, pasta with rich complex sauces and meat stews.

Excellent wine, big, smooth and bold and I love the security of the real cork. Awesome in a Spiegelau glass.
