This wine is a vibrant and lively plum red with purple hues, which has become the trademark of this youthful exuberant wine. There are lifted floral aromas with generous dark cherry and violets. A spicy rose petal-like infusion from the Touriga Nacional combines to complete the sensory experience. A new world vibrant fresh array of red berry fruits and spice gives way to an old world European earthiness. The spicy pepper of the Shiraz and the generous, gamey, juice raspberry flavors of Grenache finish with soft yet assertive tannins. A judicious splash of Touriga adds lovely red rose petal spice. This is a very food friendly wine, it interplays rather than dominates.
Enjoy with antipasto, smoked meats, game or even a little roast duck – in which the Gamekeeper has been known to indulge occasionally.
