Winemaker’s notes:

The wine has a complex nose with overtones of black and white pepper, pomegranate, cigar box, cloves and spice. On the palate there is vibrant red fruit, blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours, under-pinned by well integrated oak with a long spicy finish. This wine shows a good structure and will develop for years to come.


Food suggestions:


Enjoy with powerful and spicy red meat dishes including venison. Strongly flavoured, harder cheeses pair well with this wine.
