A deep ruby red colour, with notes of strawberries, raspberries and tealeaves on the nose, which follows through to the palate. A well balanced structure with fresh acidity and dry appetising finish. This wine will keep on developing in the bottle for the next 7 -10 years.
Chill it down for a refreshing summer drink with seafood or serve at room temperature with meat and Italian style dishes.
