Winemaker's Notes

Wine Color A rich violet with a lovely purple hue.

Wine Bouquet Red berry fruit characters abound with spice, mint, blackcurrants and plum. Faint cedar and cigar box elements are evident from the barrel maturation.

The palate is long, round and rich yet quite approachable with enough long fine tannins to provide a classy finish. A truly great value and imminently drinkable wine.

Suggested Food Matching Gourmet Barbeque or ideal for any good red meat dish such as spicy sausages, lamb or some of the milder game meats - duck would be excellent.
