Inky, deep purple coloured blend offers youthful, incensed aromas of sweet perfume, wild dark berries, sweet spice and musk.
The palate is lush, supple and juicy, showing bold sweet fruit, kirsch and sour cherry, nicely framed by freshness, good wood integration and soft tannins.
Delicious on its own or as a partner to rich venison casseroles or even strong cheese.
The red cultivars were vinified separately and then blended together. NT 50 yeast was used. Pumping over was done three times per day in red wine tanks.
The wine matured in small French oak barrels for 23 months.
