A bright ruby colour. Complex 2016 fruit develop into cranberry and blackberry, exquisitely opening the violets and jasmine notes. The entry is elegant with well rounded tannin and the fruitful follow-through from nose causing the finish to linger. The well-balanced palate shows dark plum, Christmas cake, Turkish delight and a fine hint of cinnamon. It finishes with soft elegant, chalky tannins. Decant 30 minutes prior to serving.
This is a versatile wine, that pairs well with red meats, ostrich fillet, venison, spicy Asian foods and tomato-based dishes.
