Colour: Deep, rich ruby.
Bouquet: Succulent ripe sweetness of red and black fruit with mulberry, raspberry and plums all mingling with fresh herbaceousness and a touch of spicy, toasted oak.
Taste: The wine is medium full-bodied with a ripe friendliness in its tannin structure. A good balance of opulence and restraint hints at its viticultural origin as well as an above-average vintage. Its ample fruitiness is backed up by a food-friendly, elegant and lingering aftertaste.
Ageing Potential: Enjoy now or experience its complexities enhanced with a further 36 to 60 months of cellaring.
Food Pairing: Enjoy it on its own or with some wonderful “sticky” spare ribs, Smoked pulled-pork burger (don’t forget the gherkins) or a simple bolognaise.
