Colour: a deep garnet red.
Nose: the highly complex nose offers aromas of ripe black fruit combined with smoke and toast, going on to develop notes of liquorice and fine spice.
Palate: the attack is rich, full-bodied and fresh. The very full mi-palate reveals pronounced black fruit flavours over an elegant tannic structure, with fresh fruit returning on the finish. A fine balance between fruit and oak.
Menu suggestions: a most enjoyable accompaniment to grilled rib steack, steack with mushroom or rabbit in wine and mushroom sauce.
Serving temperature: 18 - 19° C.
