Description

Colour: Dark, rich and pure. Bouquet: Perfumed dark fruit backed up by cigar box and integrated wood spices. Classis pencil shavings and cassis. Taste: Cassis and savoury spice. Vibrant with energy. Elegant but powerful and full bodied. A stylish, princely wine with lovely depth. Food pairing: This wine perfectly complements red meat, poultry and casseroles and is excellent served with charcuterie and mature cheeses.
