Deep garnet red in colour with aromas of fragrant ripe cherry, spicy toast and violet highlights overlying rich plum and savoury notes. The palate is characterised by a sweet ripe plum and cherry fruit with spicy complexity
and a generous mid palate. Firm yet fi ne tannin structure balanced with concentration of flavor yielding to a silky chocolate fi nish.
Given this wine's peerless structure, it will continue to improve for some number of years before reaching its full potential. This wine's fine structure and intense concentration make it an ideal match for a wide range of foods. It will match well with porcini or fi eld mushroom
pasta/risotto. The richness also lends itself to rare venison, grilled ostrich or a variety of slow cooked game meat casseroles such as rabbit or fowl with winter vegetables.
