  • Tasting notes

    Dark, deep red colour. Very complex nose with black berry, black current, prune, liquorice, cedar, cloves and hints of coffee bean. A Very elegant wine, with ripe refined tannins and lingering finish. Excellent balance between fruit and oak. A wine with exceptional ageing potential.

    Red meats and heartier vegetable pastas.
