Colour - Opaque heart, with vibrant brick red edges
Nose - Initial aromas are of black & red cherries, strawberry shortcake and cassis. There are also intriguing earthy and spicy nuances of liquorice vanilla and sweet cinnamon. Aeration will release plum, mulberry and raspberry notes.
Palate - Silky smooth and sweet, with luscious ripe fruit woven into elegantly constructed tannins. This wine will reward even further if decanted.
Food Matches - Pairs well with big flavored meat dishes as well as roast duck, poultry and ostrich served with salad and a well aged balsamic dressing. A great match with Italian dishes like wild mushroom risotto with truffle oil, a rocket and basil salad, or roast lamb with black olive paste.
