Colour - Opaque with vibrant, deep ruby red edges
Nose - Initial aromas are of black and red cherries, strawberry shortcake and cassis with some intriguing earthy, spicy nuances of liquorice, vanilla and sweet cinnamon. Aeration will release plum, mulberry and raspberry aromas
Palate - Silky smooth and sweet, with beautiful ripe fruit wound tightly into elegantly constructed tannins. This wine will reward even further if decanted
Food Matches - Able to complement 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 and a rocket and basil salad, or roast lamb with black olive paste.
