FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Think rich and bold when looking to match this wine: game, venison, lamb, goats'' milk and mature cheese and interesting salad leaves.
Colour: Saturated ruby red.
Nose: Sexy aromas of dark berries, cassis and kirsch, hints of chocolate and mocha.
Palate: The palate impression offers ripe fruit, bedded in finely knitted ripe tannins. All these combine to assail the palate with a level of density, structure and viscosity to offer an outstanding mouth-feel. A liquid velvet texture is transformed by a rocky, minerally element. A complete wine with a classic elegance and excellent finish.
