Description

A complex wine with red fruit flavours. Big, elegant and ripe tannin structures. Will over time show more secondary and forest floor characteristics.

Ageing Potential

A fantastic food wine – serve with duck, game, lamb, smoked pork and Asian-style dishes.

Tasting notes

Deep purple colour. Intense aromas of black plums, red and black berries, vanilla and aromatic sweet spices. This vintage offers good complexity with layered red and black fruit flavours which are balanced and accessible, but will continue to develop savoury notes with bottle age.
