Winemaker's Notes:

A full crimson red with purple hues, this wine has a generous and bright aroma that opens to a spicy clove lift then moves into hints of white pepper and savoury notes amongst an earthy background. This is further complemented by sweet plums and red cherry fruits. Wrapped around a core of juicy redcurrant fruits, the palate combines layers of fleshy sweet flavours and a fine grained tannin finish. Smoothly balanced and eminently drinkable, this is a wine of medium weight but full on flavor.

A perfect match with a juicy roast chicken with roasted potatoes, parsnips and garlic. Also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
