Full bodied, rich, elegant, smooth with plenty of fruit. Colour: An intense, dark, ruby red.. Nose: A fragrant wine with abundant black current, liquorice and sweet cassis. Soft, smokey oak softens the black pepper vibrancy and lends an exotic lift to the nose. Palate: Pliant, textural and moderately tannic the wine is elegant and balanced. The fruit component is in harmony with the structure and the flavours are fresh and uplifting. Food Pairing: Slow-roasted lamb with traditional garlic, rosemary, roast potato and vegetables. Not quite delicate enough for quail, but certainly a match for venison, ostrich and guinea fowl. A fruit derived or berry sauce would be ideal. Best decanted.
