Beautiful deep purple colour, intense nose with red fruits (blackcurrant and mulberry), melted with slight peppery and spiced aromas. The mouthfeel structure offers soft and silky tannins. It is a well-balanced wine that can be kept for a decade.
An adaptable wine for various occasions. ideal with roasted meat, cheese, and even chocolate cake.
